Infrastructure project selection is a challenging decision-making problem. While previous literature has pointed out relevant criteria for infrastructure project selection, these criteria need to be contextualized for the effective selection of appropriate projects. This paper aims to identify these criteria in an Indonesian context. A systematic literature review was adopted to identify infrastructure project selection criteria from both local and international practices. It was coupled with twenty semi-structured interviews to draw knowledge and experiences from the Indonesian experts. Finally, a questionnaire survey was distributed and the data was analyzed using factor analysis to obtain the underlying structure of infrastructure project selection criteria. The review of literature outlined 23 selection criteria, out of which 19 criteria were considered important in the Indonesian context. Factor analysis further produced a structure of selection criteria that comprises of five major components: technical criteria, administrative criteria, strategic fit criteria, risks & politics criteria, and innovation. This study contributes by structuring infrastructure project selection criteria that also marks the transitional change from a conventional to a modern decision-making technique as adopted in Indonesia. Thus, it provides a useful reference for decision makers in making a context-based infrastructure project selection.
