The building industries in the developed and some emerging economies were able to effectively contribute to socio-economic development through the creation of employments, provisionof shelter to millions as well as the provision of basic infrastructure, through a sound policy framework compliance. However, poor policy compliance in the Nigerian Building Industry has been linked amongst other things to the industry’s inability to deliver services effectively and efficiently and this has been detrimental to Nigeria’s economy. This study therefore sought to investigate how policy/procedural framework influences the performance of projects in the Nigerian buildingindustry.Explanatory and descriptive design approaches were used to obtaindata from completed projects files and interviewsin Abuja respectively. Stratified random sampling was used to select three projects from both public and private sectors.The study established that policy and procedural frameworks guide in achieving project delivery but the stake holders do not adhere to these guidelines as stated in National Building Code. The study recommends that strict compliance to policy/procedural framework should be adopted to improve project delivery of time, cost and quality standards.
