Job Order Contracting (JOC) 1

What is Job Order Contracting?

An Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) construction delivery method that allows many projects to be completed through a competitively-awarded contract. This single-solicitation process enables projects to start faster and creates partnerships between project owners and awarded contractors, resulting in higher quality work. As the creator of JOC, Gordian has decades of experience implementing and supporting successful JOC programs. Contact us to learn more.

Why Procurement and Facilities Professionals Turn to Gordian’s JOC Solutions:

Gordian’s award-winning JOC solutions offer a unique combination of accurate cost data, purpose-built software and unmatched industry expertise.

Accurate Project Price Proposals for Your Projects

A successful JOC project depends on an accurate price proposal. Under a Gordian JOC program, all construction costs are preset and published in our Construction Task Catalog® (CTC), a Unit Price Book of more than 275,000 construction Tasks. Each Task includes a detailed description, unit of measurement, unit price and, where applicable, demolition cost. The Unit Prices contain locally developed direct costs for material and labor. The CTC also includes technical specifications and general conditions that contain the specific language concerning the execution of the contract. Before a price proposal even reaches your desk, Gordian will review to make sure it aligns with the project scope, so you know exactly what you’re paying for.
