74 A Guidebook for Selecting Airport Capital Project Delivery Methods The six-step process forms the basis for the Project Delivery Decision Report. Steps 1 through 5 can be combined for a complete report. The advantage/disadvantage checklist and the related comments will be important to documentation. An executive summary should be added to the beginning of the report to summarize the decision. Any pertinent data or research (e.g., sched- ule constraint calculations, delivery code research, and so forth) should be added as appendices. A suggested Project Delivery Decision Report outline is offered below: 1. Executive Summary 2. Project Description 3. Project Goals 4. Delivery Methods Considered 5. Advantages and Disadvantages 6. Delivery Method Decision 7. Appendices Conclusion The Tier 1--Analytical Delivery Decision Approach provides airports with a structured 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 delivery method. If this is the case, that delivery method should be selected and the decision documented in a Proj- ect Delivery Decision Report. If, at the end of this stage, a dominant choice has not emerged, the airport should document the results and move to the Tier 2 approach for a more detailed analy- sis of the remaining delivery methods.
