How IDIQ Contracts Can Serve Federal Contracting Offices

The maintenance and renovation of aging federal properties have created a substantial backlog of construction projects and placed significant pressure on leaders serving federal contracting offices to find rapid, practical solutions for complex circumstances.

Contracting Officers (abbreviated as COs or KOs, depending on the agency or branch) often juggle a vast number of projects and must thread the needle between cost reduction, compliance and timelines.

With this in mind, COs should be open to new and creative ways to address the needs of their facilities that are cost-effective, efficient and legally endorsed by the federal government. This report, developed in partnership with GovExec, identifies how indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contracts can alleviate a multitude of issues facing federal contracting offices.

Topics include:

  • Factors that make binding the federal government to a contract so challenging
  • An overview of IDIQ contracting, including how it helps federal contracting offices operate more efficiently and scale their plans faster
  • Why Gordian’s Job Order Contracting (JOC) – a type of IDIQ contract – may be of particular interest to federal agencies and departments
