Based on the evaluation conducted, NJDOT believes Job Order Contracting is a viable alternative to the established, standard Federal Preventive Maintenance Contracting method. The quicker procurement process in general for JOC Contracts, as well as allowing for the addition of new structures throughout the term of the JOC Contract without the need for procuring additional contracts, are time and cost saving qualities beneficial to the Department. In addition, the increase in efficiency of the JOC Contracts does not compromise the quality of work or direct cost of work within the Contracts, as both are comparable to that of the established standard Federal Preventive Maintenance Contracts.
It is believed that for every new contractor that is awarded a JOC contract, there may be a learning curve in getting acquainted with new software and pricing methodology. However, once learned, NJDOT anticipates receiving from new contractors the same expediency and responsiveness of current JOC contractors.
NJDOT sees JOC as an efficient and effective procurement method that should be employed further.
