Brown & Root’s On-Call Construction group provides on-call, Indefinite Delivery, Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ), and Job Order Contracting (JOC) services to state and local governmental agencies, educational, and healthcare institutions. Through “on-call” contracting, we save customers the time and money associated with bidding routine upgrades, maintenance, and renovation projects as separate work orders or jobs. With many decades of experience, Brown & Root excels in providing efficient, cost-effective, rapid-response solutions to meet our customers’ public works project needs. 

Job Order Contracting 

Job Order Contracting (JOC) is a procurement delivery vehicle developed by the Corps of Engineers in 1985 as a way to speed the execution of repair and renovation construction projects, saving customers both time and money. Brown & Root has been one of the country’s premier JOC providers since the 1980s, serving municipalities, states, K-12 school districts, colleges and universities, airports, and other federal and non-federal government entities across the country. 

The JOC contracting strategy bypasses the traditional bid process, in favor of competitively bid, fixed-price, Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contracts based on an anticipated annual volume of work. Customers benefit from a flexible, cost effective, responsive, on-site contractor – without the lengthy contract procurement process and project procurement costs. 

What are the benefits of a JOC? 

  • Shortens project schedules 
  • Reduces overall costs 
  • Increases emergency response capability 
  • Supports local small business 
  • Provides incentives for quality performance 
  • Provides design/build capability 
  • Allows little or no disruption to your internal consumers 
  • A single contract to manage, rather than multiple contractors 
  • Fosters a long-term partnership that promotes dependability, increases efficiencies, and improves quality.

Our procurement services.

Local Business Opportunities 

Brown & Root is sensitive to the opportunities that JOC can bring to the local economy. We subcontract nearly 100% of all work through a pool of pre-qualified local subcontractors. We are committed to hiring small and disadvantaged businesses and regularly exceed our customers’ small and diverse business contracting goals. 

As one of the largest contractors in the country, Brown & Root can leverage our financial strength to help small local businesses participate in your projects. Our financial position also allows us to keep on-site offices running during periods of less activity, so we are always ready when you need us. 

Cooperative Purchasing 

Brown & Root has entered JOC contract agreements with several purchasing cooperatives. These agreements have been competitively bid by governmental entities and made available to other co-op members through interlocal agreements.
