job order

Job Order Contracting (JOC) enables owners of large facility infrastructure to respond quickly to facility and constituent demands for renovation, remodel, repair and sustainability projects through the application of industry standard pricing data and a disciplined project development process. Facility owners can reduce backlog and compress schedules by as much as 60% while achieving administrative and overhead cost savings. The development of a long-term contractor partner drives efficiencies and reduces change orders in the delivery of small projects ($25,000 to $1 million and beyond). JOC is a construction delivery method that has been widely utilized for over 25 years, beginning in the military and now widely spread among universities, K-12 districts, hospitals and clinics, and other government facilities and structures. RS Means has provided the cost data upon which JOCs are based since the very beginning, and it is still the best and most widely used data for JOC programs:

  • Unparalleled cost data research team—averaging over 25 years construction experience, investing over 5500 hours a year.
  • Encompass multiple geographic regions through the use of over 900 city cost indexes.
  • Dynamic pricing including annual and quarterly updates to ensure that price surges and escalation risk are mitigated.

In addition to the cornerstone of cost data, RS Means offers a full range of products and services to enable quick and seamless implementation of JOC programs:
