IDB's Publication titled 'Design well, build better: Guide for the planning, specification, elaboration, and supervision of social infrastructure designs' explains that for the preparation of social infrastructure designs, there are several modalities: they can be carried out by the staff of the executing unit or another public institution of the borrowing country, individual consultants or a specialized consulting firm can be hired and then, in a process independent of the previous one, contract the construction, or a company responsible for the realization of the designs as well as the construction of these can be contracted through a design and construction contract.

Even in the latter case, there are variants that may include the equipment and/or the operation and maintenance of the infrastructure for a certain time.

The guide provides tools to team leaders and project teams, so they can hire designs. It will help to make the best decision as to who makes the designs, depending on the particularities of each case, and to establish clearly the scope of the work that a designer must do and the technical specifications that must be met.

It also contains lists of design contents that can easily be adapted to the particularities of each project.
