The CIB W117 Journal aims to change construction procurement and stakeholder organizations worldwide through the use of the information-based Best Value Approach (BVA). The stakeholders of the W117 technology are the stakeholders in the entire supply chain. Their vision is simple:
- Lower project costs
- Higher project value
- Higher performance
- Higher profits.
The major requirements of the research effort is to document the technology in a way that fits the culture of the country. The results of the technology are so dominant, that the newer countries are adopting the approach with very few modifications.
We invite all professionals to keep updated on the newest innovations of the Best Value Approach and contribute their work to the CIB W117 Journal.Today, we release the Journal for the Performance of Information and Value (JAPIV), Volume 8, Issue 2 (Winter 2016) with all the latest research on the Best Value Approach.

About The Journal
Performance information is a key contributor to process improvements and the development of the industry by providing quantitative and qualitative impetus. The industry can be defined as the built environment, the delivery of services, goods, and information technology. In addition, in order to sustain and improve the industry, new educational approaches are necessary. The value in performance information can be seen in the application of the information to: identify a challenge, improve or refine a process, and initiate change. The value is present at numerous levels and entities within an organization or across a project.
This journal is a source for documented performance information. It to serves as a guidepost for lessons learned, best practices, the proliferation of performance based value models in the international built environment, as well as improving the delivery of services, including education. The JAPIV seeks to engage researchers and practitioners alike.
The journal is open access, with all current and previous issues distributed online. We encourage anyone to register online to submit or be a reviewer for our journal who supports and works towards our goals.
