Job Order Contracting

JOC is a comprehensive procurement system for construction and construction related services. It helps the owners to build relationships with the contractors and complete routine construction services rapidly and at a significantly lower cost.


JOC is a competitively bid contract since all the prices and the Adjustment Factors are established before the contract is awarded. The major advantage of a JOC program is that the potential for additional Job Orders gives the contractor a continuing incentive to do timely and high quality work.
