Job Order Contracting (JOC) is a subset of construction procurement and typically used for smaller construction procurements. The use of Job Order Contracting is growing as entities are trying to find ways to achieve growth and maintenance goals while staying within budget and time constraints. To successfully implement a JOC, procurement needs to establish a JOC program. Procurement must also communicate with suppliers about JOC opportunities and manage contracts to ensure compliance with contract terms.
