Current construction contract procurement systems are often problematic which will address to the increased project costs and losses. By adopting Building Information Modeling (BIM) process which will minimize the common mistakes made during the pre-construction. However, BIM adoption level is still low in Malaysia. From the early benchmark, it’s shows there are five categories that is the main barriers of the implementation which include task, team, context, actor and process. Therefore, the aim of this study is to evaluate the performance of BIM usage in procurement system and improving the existing BIM procurement. Hence, several objectives have been in line including: (1) to study the level of adoption of BIM work process in the government procurement system; (2) to determine the challenges and barriers, and (3) to determine the best strategies to improve the government procurement system. 100 questionnaires have been distributed and 64 feedbacks has been giving feedback which includes Architects, Engineers and Quantity Surveyors from the Government Technical Department. Data collected has analysed using the Social Science Statistics System (SPSS) software. The result shows the mean average index for the questionnaire items is valued at 3.553. This value of level of adoption in positive perspective falls under the “moderate” category. However, the analysis of negative perspective (weakness) shows the mean score was in the range of high value. The highest barriers have been identified as task barrier, which is valued at 3.765. It is follow by second ranking actor-skills barrier, with the mean value of 3.718. Additional to this, the highest ranking for best strategies to improve BIM adoption is from Practitioners which had the highest mean score of 4.406. This proves that actors play very important role in improving the level of BIM adoption. As a conclusion the human practice is important in developing the knowledge of BIM implementation in procurement system. In order to drive the successful on bringing the BIM, adopting the knowledge and enhance the human intellectual and capability is very important to drive the whole successful of procurement system.
