The project delivery system and the contracting strategy adopted are the main governing factor that decides the success of a construction project in terms of time, cost, and quality. With the rising complexity of projects and stringent legal regulations, traditional practices turn out to be inefficient leading to disputes, cost, and time overruns. Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) system which is built on trust, collaboration, and pooled risk-reward sharing have been devised as an effective solution almost a decade ago. Despite its advancement, the adoption rate of IPD in India remains very low because of several reasons such as lack of awareness among the owners, the requirement of a new legal framework, unestablished BIM standards, and so on. This paper aims at proposing an IPD adoption framework for Indian construction projects by mapping the barriers of IPD implementation in India and the successful IPD implementation strategies adopted in developed countries. Selected literature consisting of published case studies of successful IPD projects, papers related to IPD implementation in India and, the IPD implementation guides, policy, and framework are utilized for this purpose. The framework proposes a step by step approach to effectively implement the IPD system in India.
