Abstract: Project buyout management is essential for the transition from the preconstruction to the construction phase. It is during this period that the project team is formed; subcontractors are finalized; the orders of material and equipment are placed; and project plans are made. Despite its importance, few studies have been conducted in this field, especially for international contractors who face many complex situations in project buyout. This paper presents the study conducted for the project buyout management for the Chinese International Contractors (CICs) in developing countries, with focus on the project buyout management under different overseas management structures, and the key influencing factors. It discusses the characteristics of CICs in developing countries; investigates the project buyout management under different overseas management structures; analyzes the advantages and disadvantages of each overseas management structure to project buyout, and identifies the major project buyout influencing factors. The results of this research will benefit both the industry practitioners and the academic researchers in this area.
