Why use JOC?

JOC is an Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) construction delivery method that allows a large number of projects to be completed through a single, competitively-awarded contract. This single-bid process enables projects to start faster and creates partnerships between project owners and awarded contractors, resulting in higher quality work.

Read answers to two of our most frequently asked questions. View all FAQs.

How does JOC work?

Job Order Contracts are awarded in compliance with your competitive bidding requirements and Unit Prices are established up front using localized labor, material and equipment costs. Awarded contractors apply a predetermined Adjustment Factor to the Unit Prices, so costs are controlled and projects begin faster. Once a contract is awarded, a standard process is followed each and every time a new project is identified.

How do I access JOC?

Whether you need robust procurement data and software to supplement your in-house expertise or you need a program implemented and supported from start to finish, Gordian has the right program for you. You can also access Job Order Contracting through national and regional cooperative purchasing networks.
