Summary This note is a comment on Chinyio, E.A., Olomolaiye, P.O., Kometa, S.T. and Harris, F.C. (1998) A needs based methodology for classifying construction clients and selecting contractors, Construction Management and Economics, 16(1), 91± 8, which describes research aimed at classifying clients by their needs rather than by the traditional public/private/developer approach. The paper also proposes a new method of selecting contractors by matching clients’ needs to contractors’ ability to satisfy them. The note offers constructive criticism of some aspects of the analysis.
