This research began with the status of the implementation of school construction projects to explore the relationship between the characteristics of its management and its impact on different levels. Through gathering literature, interviewing experts, statistical methods, and other methods of analysis, ways to improve the tender process were understood. Organizing the domestic and international literature gathered, understanding similar domestic systems, and other cases helped to develop guidelines for the shift of school construction projects into the turnkey method. The selection of appropriate vendors will reduce the likelihood of disputes arising due to compliance issues as well as address project delays and quality issues. This research began by analyzing the causes of the current issues experienced in the universities whose cases were gathered. It was proposed that the proper improvement strategy be the integration of the turnkey method into the construction projects of the schools. It was discovered in the results that using the turnkey method for school construction projects will result in 20% savings in time and cost. In addition, it was proposed that the establishment of an improved system will facilitate the smooth completion of projects; the turnkey method should be implemented on three major levels including the pre-process, selection of a turnkey vendor, and prudent planning during the implementation stage (compliance management).
