Best Management Practice (BMP) JOC by the Numbers

job order contracting

  1. Early engagement of contractors in a collaborative process.
  2. Transparent pricing.  The costs of each project (task order) is determined using a published Unit Price Book – UPB.  The UPB is a set of line item unit costs including detailed a description of the task(s) and associated material, labor, and equipment breakdowns.
  3. Best Value procurement process.
  4. Contractor applies a coefficient to project / task order costs calculated using the UPB – Coefficient incorporates overhead, profit, and other potential variables.
  5. Minimum and maximum contact value per year and per project / task order.
  6. Contractors continuously receive task orders from owner/facility manager.
  7. Design work is generally minimal and provided by the contractor.
  8. Job Order Contracts can have a term of 1 year, or 1 year plus up to four option years.
  9. Owners have the sole authority to extend requests for work and/or extend the contract.
  10. JOC consultants can facilitate the process.  Consultants, however, should not be paid to approve projects if they are being paid a percentage of the total JOC construction volume.  Learn more…
