Job Order Contracting (JOC) Program


The Facilities Maintenance team manages the campus Job Order Contracting Program. We have a portfolio of general contractors and specialty trade contractors that can perform a variety of campus projects ranging from the installation of a single electrical outlet through larger renovations. The pricing is determined by the definition of a project scope which is divided into specific tasks. These tasks are identified in a task book prepared by the Gordian company and based on Means construction cost data. Each of the contractors in the program have provided a bid adjustment factor that is multiplied by the base number in the Means price book. The final price is inclusive of all the contractor’s cost (direct, indirect, profit).

With this contracting method, each project has a line by line description of the tasks in the scope that is individually priced. If you add tasks, the cost increases. If you reduce tasks, the price decreases. It is an open and transparent process that will allow greater visibility into the total cost of a project.

As Job Order Contracting is only a procurement method for construction services, it is used both by the Facilities Maintenance team as well as by Facilities Design & Construction.

If you desire to use JOC or any other construction service, please complete the Facilities Project Estimate form. JOC projects follow the same estimate, request, and approval process as the regular projects completed by Facilities Design & Construction.
