Tier 1--Analytical Delivery Decision Approach 77 4. Delivery Methods Considered 5. Advantages and Disadvantages 6. Delivery Method Decision 7. Appendices Conclusion The Tier 1--Analytical Delivery Decision Approach provides transit agencies with a struc- tured approach to choosing the most appropriate project delivery method for each individual project. At the end of Step 5, there may be a single, clear, and logical choice for a project deliv- ery method. If this is the case, that delivery method should be selected and the decision docu- mented in a Project Delivery Decision Report. If, at the end of this stage, a dominant choice has not emerged, the agency should document the results and move to the Tier 2 approach for a more detailed analysis of the remaining delivery methods.
