OMES FAQs

Gordian is the administrator of Oklahoma’s statewide JOC program. As a pioneer in Job Order Contracting (JOC), Gordian has implemented and supported hundreds of programs across the country, serving thousands of owners.

Job Order Contracting is a trusted method to manage maintenance and construction. It allows you to take advantage of volume discounts from contracts that have already been competitively awarded. With access to local contractors, you can trade the time and expense of traditional procurement for speed, efficiency and the power of group buying.

ezIQC is the brand name of Gordian’s statewide JOC program in Oklahoma. Whenever you see ezIQC, know it refers to the OMES statewide convenience contract SW0245. In general, ezIQC is the brand name for any of Gordian’s cooperative JOC services.

Any state agency or public entity in Oklahoma that can procure work through the Office of Managements & Enterprise Services can use Gordian’s JOC program. Even if this contract isn’t right for you, Gordian might be able to help you in your construction procurement needs.

Yes, when a project is ready, the following needs to be submitted to OMES:

  • Completed M701 form
  • Owner/Agency ends Gordian Work Order Package
  • Purchase order

You may also need to submit the following depending on the project:

  • General Contractor’s certificate of insurance
  • Bond document (for projects >$50K)
  • A stamped set of plans (for projects >$158K)

You can use Oklahoma’s state-wide JOC program for any work that doesn’t already have an IDIQ contract with OMES. OMES currently has IDIQ contracts for roofing, asphalt/paving, and abatement services.

Oklahoma has been split into 4 regions with different general contractors in each region. For any work, you can select from the contractors that have been awarded in your region.

The program does not have any impact or create change in the use of Professional Services. All requirements for architectural and engineering services remain the same.

The service is being offered by the State of Oklahoma to the public agencies in the state. Availability of the program is based on a competitive bid which was conducted by the Office of Management and Enterprise Services (OMES). OMES has operated similar IDIQ programs for Roofing, Pavement/Asphalt and Abatement for several years. All legal challenges have been successfully addressed.

The Oklahoma statutes provide clear direction as to what constitutes a legal competitive bid. Oklahoma’s Job Order Contracting program complies with all the requirements for a competitive bid under Oklahoma law.

The competitive bid for contractors has been closed and the terms of the contract are for two years initially followed by annual renewals for up to three more years. There will not be a rebid of the contract for at least two years and possibly up to five years.

In the event that demand for the program is higher than expected, OMES may elect to create a second program in addition to the first one, creating opportunities for contractors to submit proposals to be included on it.

Contractors can also work on the Oklahoma JOC program as subcontractors to the General Contractors who have been awarded.
