The delay in construction is the challenge often faced in the course of executing construction projects. It has attracted the interest of many researchers and practitioners. Earlier studies only conducted on ranking the causes of delay and analyzed the overall construction project. The main purpose of this study is to develop a conceptual model of delay factors and to analyze the level of impact of the delay groups on the completion of the government construction projects which could be related more to the legislation, the administrative procedures. This study identified 28 delay factors and 6 core groups of factors affecting the project completion in the final conceptual model. The results of the study show that the three most influential factors of project completion are: information delays and lack of information exchange between the parties; incompetent owner; and incompetent supervision consultant. The bulk of control of the delay depends on the groups of factors relating to contractor and owner because they have the strongest impact on the project completion. The findings of the study can help the parties involved the government construction projects to give out appropriate solutions for countering the delay.
