Construction procurement can be a lengthy and costly process, and there is always the challenge there might be a staff shortage, time constraints and difficulties understanding contracting legalities and complexities. Whether you’re working on renovations, upgrades or new construction, Gordian's Job Order Contracting solutions allow you to put readily available contractors in place on a substantial number of projects with one, competitively awarded contract.

Job Order Contracting is a proven construction procurement process ideal for use on renovation and alteration work, responding quickly to emergencies, addressing a backlog of deferred repairs and straightforward new construction. Instead of dealing with the time and expense of bidding each project separately, with Job Order Contracting, the contract has already been competitively awarded for an indefinite number of projects, enabling contractors to respond quickly and construction to begin faster.
