Frequently Asked Questions


Job Order Contracting is a procurement method where a contract is awarded based on the contractor’s past performance, capabilities, and price. The two most unique aspects of Job Order Contracting are the methods used for pricing and work order award.

Job Order Contracts are priced by applying a coefficient to items of work listed in an industry standard price book. The two most common price books are the R.S. Means Catalog and the Gordian Group’s Construction Task Catalog. Basic IDIQ has experience with both of these price books.
