Brian Moore, Director of RIAS Consultancy, was appointed to advise the University of Dundee in respect of the procedures to be followed for a quality based selection process. The University adopted a competitive interview process based on a balance of quality and price in the ratio 70%/30% to identify the team offering best value. The procedure followed guidance issued by the Construction Industry Board in their publication “Selecting Consultants for the Team; Balancing Quality and Price”.

‘we obviously encountered RIAS Consultancy at two key stages in the project; at Design Team selection and then at Contractor Interview. As ever Brian Moore conducted both processes with rigour, fairness and clarity and we were naturally delighted with the outcome of the selection of the Design Team!’
