Material Recovery Facility (MRF) Services
The City of Phoenix
The City of Phoenix Public Works Department owns two facilities used to produce single stream recyclable material. The City partnered with ASU to re-compete the contract for facility operation services with the intent of improving performance and increasing revenues.
The City found the interview process used in Expertise-driven Project Delivery (XPD) to be highly successful in identifying the expertise of bidders. Each team brought operations personnel for individual interviews and answered questions regarding their planned operation approach and risk minimization strategies.
The Value Added portion of the RFP process allowed the bidders to propose additional scope and services that would benefit the City. Due to this process, the awarded vendor was able to offer capital improvements valued at $2.3 million to upgrade certain processing equipment.
Cost Impact: increased to $80M net revenues
Value Added Impact: $2.3M capital improvements

Optimization of the Design Process
UNIVERSITY OF ALBERTA, UNIVERSITY OF ALBERTA
Design for Redevelopment of an Iconic Building on Campus
The Expertise-driven Procurement and Project Delivery (XPD) approach was used to select a design team for redevelopment of a 330k SF historical building. A phased selection process was used to assemble design team in 3 components to achieve the most advantageous team (Architectural, Mechanical, and Electrical). The Owner and Vendor have seen XPD optimize the design process in many ways:
- Increased efficiency has been achieved via a faster response time for interactions between Client and Vendor.
- Risk-focused performance measurement has aided the team in identifying key risks, collaboratively establishing mitigation strategies, and transparently tracking progress throughout design development.
- Design Reports have been on time, met requirements, and had high Client satisfaction.
Best Value Impact:
- Quicker response time for client and designer interactions
- Improved interactive agreement for design direction
- Real time risk tracking during design development
