Abstract: Effective inter-firm collaboration i.e. partnering in construction sector can lead to successful projects reflecting reduction in costs, timely completion as per schedule, improved safety, total quality management and reduced claims/conflicts or disputes. This paper describes a partnering process model which is completely a web based computer application with the principle of overcoming the various problems that are associated with the traditional or manual process to achieve complete transparency at every step and at every transaction for achieving successful and strategic partnering relationships. The Partnering process includes Partner Registration, Partner Selection & Approval based on qualification criteria, Partner Evaluation based on weighted grade point average, Automated Generation of Quotation and Negotiation, forming a Partnering Agreement & setting up mutual goals & objectives and Generating automated Purchase/Work/Service order along with Time & Payment Schedule. Basis for Project Partners is to adopt a “Win – Win” approach to solve problems and develop ‘Synergistic’ team work amongst them.
