30 Years Late: DoE Discovers IDIQ -- ‘Job Order Contracting

HIDOE completing school roof repairs more quickly under new contracting method

News Release from Hawaii DoE, 08-Apr-2019

The Hawaii State Department of Education (HIDOE) is more quickly working through backlogged roof repair projects at schools utilizing a new contracting method to expedite common repairs.

The Department successfully completed several roofing projects in recent weeks using a method known as Job Order Contracting (JOC), a key part of HIDOE’s Future Schools Now initiative.

The JOC method allows the Department to contract several vendors through competitive bidding to perform commonly encountered repair projects at fixed prices over the life of a multiyear contract, rather than having to bid out individual repair jobs. The aim is to eventually handle all roof repairs with this method, followed by heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems, and electrical upgrades in future rollouts.

“Part of the Department’s commitment to ensuring equity and excellence in education involves providing safe and ready access to campuses and classrooms that promote world-class learning opportunities,” said Dann Carlson, assistant superintendent for the Office of School Facilities and Support Services. “Job Order Contracting is one strategy to help us tackle repair and maintenance projects more efficiently as we carry out our mission.”

The following eight school roof repair projects took on average 34 days to move through the procurement process using JOC. Construction completion ranged from eight days to 23 days. By comparison, the traditional design-bid-build method takes on average seven years to move through the appropriation, design, bidding and construction phases for DOE projects.

HIDOE partnered with Gordian Inc., the creators of JOC, to develop and implement a JOC program, and in January awarded three roofing contractors for Oahu and two roofing contractors for Hawaii Island. Over the last three months, HIDOE has procured more than $2 million in roof repair construction work.
