Bidders are strongly encouraged to attend to obtain information regarding the Job Order Contract program.
The advertisement for bids is for the award of a Job Order Contract (JOC). Work is accomplished by issuing Task Orders to the successful contractor during the term of the contract. The scope of work may include repair, alteration, modernization, maintenance, rehabilitation, demolition and construction of infrastructure, rights-of-way, retaining walls, parks, playgrounds, medians and other similar works, structures, or other real property.
The Contract Term is 730 days from the date of notification to Contractor of executed Contract or when the cumulative amount of issued Task Orders reaches the Maximum Contract Value, whichever comes first. The Contract Term may be extended up to 5 years to complete the work of issued Task Orders, but no new Task Orders will be issued after the first 4 years.
