What People Want to Know About JOC

The most common questions we hear are below.

Why use JOC?

JOC is an Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract that allows multiple projects to be completed through a single contract. This enables projects to start faster and for project owners and awarded contractors to become
long-term partners, resulting in higher quality work and a better experience.

How does JOC work?

Contractors bid an adjustment factor to a catalog of tasks with preset Unit Prices developed using local material costs and labor rates. Once a contract is awarded, the contractor can perform a variety of projects.

How do I access JOC?

Contracting through national and regional cooperative purchasing networks.
