Job Order Contract

Region 5

Purpose of Job Order Contract(s) -"JOC"

The purpose of this procurement is to award Job Order Contract(s) for minor construction, repair, rehabilitation, or alteration of a facility for work of a recurring nature in which the delivery times are indefinite and indefinite quantities and orders are awarded substantially on the basis of pre-described and pre-priced tasks.

How it works:

The Contractor shall furnish all necessary labor, materials, tools, supplies, equipment, transportation, supervision, management and shall perform all operations necessary and required for construction work. All work shall be performed in accordance with the requirements set forth in the resulting contract and each mutually agreed upon work request or purchase order issued by REGION 5 ESC’s client partner.

JOC Contracts:

A contract will be established with standard specifications and pricing based upon a coefficient that is applied to a Unit Price Book (UPB). When a specific project or job order is issued, REGION 5 ESC’s member and the contractor will agree on the scope of work and the cost is determined by applying the coefficient to the appropriate units in the UPB. REGION 5 ESC encourages the use of local subcontractors. The current JOC is a one (1) year contract which began on 1/1/2021 and ends on 12/31/2021, with four (4) one (1) renewal options.

JOC Process Qualifications:

The JOC process is not appropriate for the construction of a new campus, however, it may be used to add on to a facility or construct facilities such as gyms or field houses as noted above. Since the JOC contactors were selected through the RFP process, the timeline for completing a project can be significantly reduced. Certainly, JOC may be utilized in projects not requiring proposals or bids.


FEMA has reimbursed work in the past where the JOC (IDIQ) was utilized following the declaration of emergency (or urgency) by the Board of Trustees of a school or public entity. Each entity should consult their own counsel if they intend to seek FEMA assistance.
