Abstract

Construction risk in Public Private Partnership (PPP) produced the highest risk factors compared to other development stages. Construction defect in PPP project often reported among the common construction risk that affected the project performance of completed facility. A serious attention about defect liability could prevent any impact of completed facility especially during project handing over to avoid any consequences towards time and operational performances. Without specific reference on defect liability, it has created a polemic on their contract principles and effectiveness. Within that scenario, the objective of this study is to identify the issues pertaining to defect liability with associated risk factors and consequences which give effects toward the project performance. A qualitative approach was used to analyse literature reviews to provide a basis for improvement of PPP project specifically in Malaysia context. The publications related to PPP project performance were reviewed where the information was classified into three sector which are issues, risk factor and possible effects. The Malaysia PPP structure model was highlighted as an evidence to support the reviews. The findings showed that the polemics arise due to the lacking of guidelines and legal documents in discussing the defects liability. Hence, the study had recommended four resolutions to overcome the issues such as specify defect liability time frame, develop defect management framework, monitor the transition period during project hand over and improvise quality assurance and quality control in order to sustain the service level during the operation of completed facilities.
