RECOMMENDATION
Approve an agreement with The Gordian Group to develop, implement, and support a Job Order Contract program per Buyboard Contract No. 334-10.
BACKGROUND
The attached proposal has been provided by the Gordian Group to do a job order contracting service for this area for the County to use. They have a contract with the Buyboard to do this work. There is no cost to the county upfront. The cost is incurred if we decide to use the Construction Task Catalog. Public Works has used the general Construction Task Catalog for a number of projects in the past. The primary values in a Gordian JOC program are as follows: • Significant savings in the cost of construction using a Gordian Construction Task Catalog (CTC) pricing rather than RSMeans. A savings of 5%-15% on your construction projects only because the Gordian pricing is so much more competitive than an RSMeans estimating guide is. • Significant time and cost savings in the procurement because the projects can be procured essentially with a phone call once your customized JOC program is established. • Significant improvement in the productivity of your Project Managers because they can focus more on actually managing the projects rather than reviewing proposals. Gordian oversight and review of the proposals keeps your contractors accountable and allows your Project Managers To focus on the most important parts of their job. • Legal protection because your JOC program will have all the accountability, transparency and auditability which is so critical. • Lastly, a customized JOC program is at no initial cost or obligation to Nueces County. The County doesn’t have any obligations until a Purchase Order is issued. The program is purely performance driven. You only pay for it if you use it. If you don’t like it, you don’t use it. Gordian is managing the JOC program for Harris County and Harris Health, Harris County’s Hospital District.
