Abstract
Contractors are very important in construction projects for the completion of project and selection of the best contractor for the project is a crucial decision for clients or owner. Selecting the right contractor for the right project is the most crucial challenge for any construction clients. Selection of the contractor to whom the client can trust and give the responsibility to execute the project has been primarily on the basis of bid price alone and the lowest price (tender) is usually described as being the key to win the contract, despite the fact that the tender sum is a major considerationbecauseofinstabilityandcompetitivenessoftheconstructionindustry, the selection of lowest bidder is one of the major reason for project failures. Recently there has been a trend away from a lowest price wins principle and subjective judgments to a multi criteria selection approach.
