29 Jan Performance Information Procurement System (PIPS)
By Dean Kashiwagi, Jacob Kashiwagi, Kenneth Sullivan
The Performance Information Procurement System (PIPS) was developed at Arizona State University (ASU). PIPS is used to deliver services. PIPS minimizes the client’s risk/project management transactions by up to 90%, can increase vendor profit up to 100% at no additional cost to the buyer, and delivers projects on time, no cost deviations, with high customer satisfaction at a 98% rate. PIPS has been tested in the construction industry and has been adopted by ASU as the model for the delivery of services.
The implementation of the model has increased ASU’s vendor’s cash investments to $100M over the next ten years.
