Could you clarify your question. Why would a government need a joint venture partner? What is the project involved and what would your role be?
Well there is a need in the contruction industry to deliver committed projects for the community and we plan to make a proposal to government so that thee committed projects get executed in time and in budget.
Yes and also include for the design and quantity surveying but in a joint venture as this company will also be able to undertake private work. One important point is that we will second some employees from the government civil service as part of the plan. Apart from the business set up which is the legal advice.
You can be organized as any type of business entity to provide the services you want to provide. You can be a corporation or an LLC and provide those services. I do not know what you mean be "second some employees" from the government civil service but if you are planning on paying government civil service to work for you on these government projects you may have some serious conflict of interest issues in doing that. That is a questionable approach if that is what you mean.
The key to making your business model a success is to be able to demonstrate to a government agency that hiring you will be not only cost effective but also lead to better performance of the projects in terms of on time and within budget completion. If you have some history of doing this successfully, you will have a better chance of selling such services.
