Abstract: This paper reports an innovative, scientific and yet practicable approach developed in assisting a large-scale high-rise residential building developer in Hong Kong for monitoring the competitiveness in the switchboard supply to her development projects. In this study, a pricing indicator was developed for monitoring whether the pricing levels charged to developer had attained a competitive level. Our results revealed that the pricing level charged to the developed was far from competitive, and the high cost was contributed by inadequate competitiveness in the switchboard supply as a result of the practice of including only a limited number of suppliers on the pre-qualification list. By relaxing the pre-qualification requirements, the pricing level dropped to a very competitive level after two additional suppliers being included on the list.
