DBB M ETHOD —I NVITATIONAL B IDDING Invitational bidding, also called closed bidding, is another variation of the DBB method that is generally used for quasi-public and some private projects. In this method, the owner preselects general contractors who have demonstrated, based on their experience, resources, and financial standing, their qualifications to perform the work. The selected contractors are then invited to bid for the project, and the contractor with the lowest bid is then awarded the contract.

The birth of the CMAA delivery method does not mean that there is no construction management in design-bid-build, or the negotiated contract method. It exists, but it is done informally and shared by the design team and the general contractor. The introduction of a CM on the project transfers various functions of the general contractor (in a traditional method) to the CM. Thus, in the CMAA method, the general contractor becomes redundant. Therefore, there is no general contractor in this method.
