Gordian’s Job Order Contracting Awards

Gordian’s Job Order Contracting Awards is an annual award program recognizing innovative uses of Job Order Contracting (JOC). Submissions are judged on their adherence to JOC best practices, innovation, complexity, special circumstances and overall time and cost savings. The program’s highest honor, The Harry H. Mellon Award of Excellence in Job Order Contracting, is named for Harry H. Mellon, the creator of JOC and founder of Gordian. We are now accepting submissions for projects completed during 2023. Submit your project to earn nationwide recognition for your great work.

Eligible Projects

Nominations for the awards must have used Job Order Contracting to complete a project in 2022 that delivered high value and time and cost efficiencies to the project owners. Work procured through a cooperative purchasing network is eligible. The end result should also benefit end-users, taxpayers and contractors. Basically, the project should be good for everybody. To be considered, include at least three photos of the project.

What We’re Looking For

We welcome all nominations that meet the eligibility requirements, but we do have a few things we’re looking for in a winner. To win, a project must reflect a repair, renovation or simple construction work based on pre-priced construction tasks and specs. Using JOC to overcome extraordinary circumstances or complex problems always get the judges’ attention. Lastly, don’t forget to highlight how JOC saved the project stakeholders time and/or money.
