Maintenance dredging is a form of construction work regularly undertaken by many port operators to maintain navigable channel, allow ship access and transfer their loading to the port. It is costly, prone to high risk, with complex and dynamic project environments, creating an atmosphere of high uncertainty and risks. As a result, the procurement approach and risk management adopted for delivering the maintenance dredging project are rather dissimilar in comparison to typical construction project. This paper provides an overview of the procurement and risk management approaches used for maintenance dredging projects at two Malaysian seaports, i.e. Johor Port and Port of Tanjung Pelepas. Competitive bid and direct award are two main procurement systems implemented in both ports. The use of rather sophisticated technologies in the maintenance dredging process and including mitigating or minimizing some of potential risks during the process is inevitable.
