Job order contracting provides distinct advantages to traditional design-bid-build, design-build, or CM@R.

Job order contracting is a LEAN collaborative construction delivery method that enable numerous renovation, repair, and construction projects to be completed on-time and on-budget, as well as to the satisfaction of all participants.

Job order contracting is NOT for everyone as it requires a shift is Culture and Behavior as well as a minimum set of capabilities on the part of the Owner, Contractor, and other stakeholders.   In point of fact, many/most Owners are not capable of deploying Job Order Contracting as they require additional education in the areas of LEAN, total-cost-of-ownership, and life-cycle management of the  built environment.   Similarly many contractors may not have the necessary skills and/or mindsets of transparency, collaboration, and shared/common goals.

A best practice job order contacting framework incorporates a JOC contract and an associated job order contracting operations manual.   Roles, responsibilities, and deliverables are clearly defined.   A unit price book, UPB is used by Owners and Contractors to provide line item detail and cost estimates for all construction projects / task orders.

A best practice Job Order Contract is also one that is Owner developed, deployed, and managed.  While outsourcing a Job Order Contracting Program to a third party may provide a way to become familiar with job order contracting, both it and the use of Cooperatives do not provide the full capabilities and benefits associated with Job Order Contracting.
