JOC is a construction project delivery method that provides an avenue for facility managers to receive numerous, commonly encountered construction projects quickly and easily through multi-year contracts.  JOC reduces unnecessary levels of engineering, design, and contract procurement time along with construction project procurement costs by awarding long-term contracts for a wide variety of renovation, repair and construction projects.

Users of Job Order Contracting include:

  • The Military
  • The Federal Government
  • The State and County Governments

  • K-12 Education
