The best recommended procurement method to be followed for the M4 widening is the best value method. This has been recommended because the facts of the quality of working of the contractor is also considered makes the final project delivered to be of high quality. Also the consideration of the price makes the project to become cost effective as well as of high quality. The marking has been awarded to the criteria based on the project case study. Higher the number means that the property is that much involved in the procurement method.
