The objectives of this decision are that through the application of BIM, Vietnam can strive to achieve the objective of saving at least 30% of convertible general expenses for entities concerned during such application, enhance transparency and convenience in management and control of quality of facility building and operating management activities. Including: cutting down about 10% of construction cost (including reducing overuse of building materials by approximately 20%); decreasing construction time by about 10% compared with the approved progress; reducing duration of design and design modification by about 10%…

The decision mentions the need to prepare necessary conditions and skill training sessions for the application of BIM, including duties such as improve awareness and encourage entities, institutions or enterprises to implement BIM; outline the legal framework for application of BIM, system of technical regulations, standards or economic and technical norms where relevant; build instructions for BIM and develop the framework for training of knowledge about BIM and make arrangements for providing training to construction authorities exercising their delegated powers. From 2018 to 2020, initiate pilot application of BIM at several projects, including duties such as conduct utilization of BIM in project design, construction and management operations for at least 20 new construction packages ranging from the first to higher level in investment and construction projects financed by the state and other sources (on a voluntary basis); utilize BIM for operation management of at least 10 important projects which are subject to technical complicated requirements and developed by state funds, and from 2021, based on the review and evaluation report on application of BIM, the Ministry of Construction shall introduce the Circular and Detailed Guidance on universal utilization of BIM in facility construction and operating management activities.

The decision notice 942/QD-TTg has been published to develop BIM adoption in Vietnam with an aim to strive to reduce least 20% of administrative procedures of state agencies by 2025. On June 15, 2021, the Government published the Decision No. 942/QD-TTg approving the e-Government development strategy towards the digital Government in the 2021 – 2025 period, with a vision to 2030. The decision also sets targets towards 2025 include: At least 80% of administrative procedure records are processed completely online and people are only required to declare data once; 100% of state agencies provide services 24/7 and are ready to provide online services at any time; 100% of officials have digital identities for work; At least 20% of administrative procedures of state agencies are reduced compared to the current number; Each citizen has a digital identity and QR code, striving so that all citizens have smartphones; etc.

The decision sets out the governments digital strategy and vision with the key tasks in the Strategy being: Researching on and proposing amendments to the Law on E-Transactions and guiding documents; Developing and operating stable, safe and uninterrupted specialized network infrastructure that connects administrative levels from the central to commune level based on specialized data transmission networks; Developing and completing the national public service portal so that people and enterprises can access online public services of ministries, sectors and localities; etc. This Decision takes effect on the signing date.

The Government’s BIM Strategy was published in September 2017 to stimulate the public sector and to support the digital transformation and growth of the construction sector. It was prepared by the Ministry of Industry and Trade, working closely with Czech BIM Council experts. Within the Strategy, a key element for reducing costs, cutting waste and avoiding errors is the adoption of the Building Information Management (BIM), which makes the most of digital technologies to provide a consistent flow of information and measurable standards at all stages of the construction life cycle, including asset and facility management.

The Government Construction Strategy was published in May 2011 to support the growth of the construction sector, which is a major part of the UK economy. It was prepared by the Efficiency and Reform Group of the Cabinet Office and the Construction Sector Unit of BIS, working closely with Infrastructure UK (IUK).  

The Strategy aimed to help reduce costs up to 20%, improve business models and practices, and establish a collaborative culture while ensuring the public sector is more informed and better coordinated to provide clear briefs and work with suppliers to develop cost-effective solutions for projects of all sizes.  

Within the Strategy, a key element for reducing costs, cutting waste and avoiding errors is the adoption of the Building information Modelling (BIM), which makes the most of digital technologies to provide a consistent flow of information, measurable standards at all stages of construction and a basis for asset management when a project is completed.  

To enable businesses of all sizes to implement BIM, the Government set up a timeframe and adoption path that allow companies at different transition stages to catch up. This is described in the Strategy as a phased process involving industry groups, in order to allow time for businesses to prepare for the development of new standards and for upskilling their workforce. 

The 2011 Government Construction Strategy introduced fully collaborative BIM – with all project and asset information, documentation and electronic data – as a minimum requirement for all government clients by 2016. This is referred to as the UK BIM Mandate.
