Abstract: The research presented in this paper aims to determine the influence of different procurement methods on rework occurrences in construction projects. Design/methodology/approach Pertinent literature was reviewed, specifically regarding procurement methods influencing the occurrence of rework. A questionnaire survey was done on purposively selected construction professionals based in the Cape Peninsula metropolis. Descriptive (mean) and inferential (t-test) statistics were used to analyse the data. Findings Data were obtained from 78 construction professionals. The causes of rework were analysed and discussed. It became apparent that rework causes do not differ relative to various procurement methods. Originality/value of paper It is posited that design and construction organisations need to improve the quality of operations throughout the procurement process in order to reduce the occurrence of rework and subsequently improve the overall project performance.
