In the first decade of this century, many initiatives were taken to improve the cooperation between client and contractor, to decrease failure costs and to professionalize the construction industry. Together with the ‘PSiBouw’ program and ‘Regieraad Bouw,’ the Performance information Procurement System (pips) was introduced in the Netherlands. Remarkable results were reported from the usa; projects that deliver on budget, on time and that meet the client’s expectations are pips standards. The existing clarification for success is only based upon the information factor (the more relevant data is being efficiently processed and used, the more likely it is that wrong decisions will be prevented). The central goal of this PhD research is to provide clarification for success based upon acknowledged theories. Therefore the core research question is: how can pips results be clarified? Or in other terms: what mechanisms cause pips successes?
