This paper examines the underlying factors behind contractor selection in Ghana in terms of policy and practice. The paper relied on quantitative data with 199 respondents of consultants and clients of construction projects. Using factor analysis, five (5) factors emerged; managerial capabilities, quality standards, resource availability, duration, project cost and location as the most influential factors. The paper concludes that through the classification and/or reclassification of selection factors, practitioners and professionals would find it easier in using these factors to make very informed decisions in contractor selection for future projects and also help client achieve both economic and social value for money.
