Selecting an Engineer

When Quality & Value Matter

Ensure the success of your project by utilizing Qualifications-Based Selection (QBS). When a project is undertaken, the selection of an engineer is one of the most important events in the process.  An engineer’s performance can influence the entire course of the project—financial feasibility, public response, appearance, functional efficiency, construction costs—as well as operating and maintennce (lifecycle) costs.

The QBS Wisconsin website is dedicated to successfully navigating you through the QBS process. It can be an invaluable resource for board members, committees and staff when an organization begins planning for a project. The website helps owners learn about the process. Facilitator assistance may be available to help owners train the selection team on the specifics of proposal preparation and interviews.

QBS is a simple process. Use the QBS Manual for step-by-step instructions. This free resource also includes writable forms and letter templates.
