This research study examined the factors that influence board members in the selection of an architectural firm for new school construction and/or renovation projects in North Carolina. School board members completed a survey which allowed the researcher to identify factors which are important in the selection process of architectural firms. North Carolina law requires school systems to employ an architectural firm for new school construction and/or renovation projects within local school agencies. The data collected focused on four categories of architectural firms: reputation, costs, staffing, and other. Responses on the survey were coded to identify similarities/differences across gender, race/ethnicity, age, years as a school board member, years the school board member has resided in their local education agency (LEA), student enrollment, assigned district number, and personal involvement in the selection of an architectural firm in their LEA.
