Abstract : This research study examines the nature and applicability of Optimum Value Engineering (OVE) design and construction techniques in the U.S. Navy's housing construction contract Request For Proposal (RFP). OVE techniques and findings are discussed, the RFP process is explained and the interface between the two is examined and defined. A Navy family housing project and other reference projects are used for the investigation of current and proposed OVE techniques. As a result, modifications to the current RFP are recommended, based on the case study findings, cost analysis of several key items and the author's personal experience.
