Abstract: Material procurement, as well as user satisfaction, is the key factor of a successful construction project. Therefore, the contractors need strategies that support the effectiveness and efficiency of the procurement process in line with gaining the user satisfaction. This study aims to define material procurement strategies by implementing supply positioning model (SPM) and quality function deployment (QFD). There are 24 types of material to be measured using SPM matrix. The respondents are 86 construction companies which are also members of GAPENSI Central Java-Indonesia. The best procurement strategy for critical items is to have a strong partnership relationship and consider replacing suppliers when it is urgently needed. The most important supplier criteria to achieve best construction quality are the supplier's work experience, the quality of the materials provided by the supplier, the completeness of the quality management system, the capabilities and technology used by the supplier, and other criteria.
Keywords: construction projects; materials procurement; quality function deployment; QFD; strategic procurement; supply positioning models; SPMs; Indonesia.
