—The construction sector plays an important role in the national economy through strengthening and enabling other sectors. Construction provides basic amenities and infrastructures that support social development. Despite its important contribution, the industry is still saddled with serious problems such as poor quality, low productivity, poor image, economic volatility, bureaucratic delays, and cost overruns. With an eye to overcoming these problems, this paper proposed a study on supplier-contractor partnering and its impact on construction performance.
