Clark County- Nevada Job Order Contracting

Clark County’s commissioner, Marilyn Kirkpatrick, is leading the way for Clark County to award 5, $5,000.000.00 contracts for local build and design-build projects. Chairman Kirkpatrick’s goal is “to make County government work for citizens and improve the communities that we call home.”  In the next 12 months, over 40 projects are projected totaling $25,000,000.00 for the Department for Real Property Management (RPM). The $25 million is just a fraction of the $500 million annual book. RPM leadership shared the intent is to simplify the bid process and get projects completed faster for constituents. Clark County Real Property management and Purchasing Divisions have held workshops to introduce the solicitation that will be published mid-December 2021 with a response date of early January 2022. Contract Award is expected March 2022.

The process of issuing a JOC allows the County and RPM to qualify contractors once for the design and build process, rather than qualifying them for each project.

Job Order Contracting- Unit Pricing

Clark County has contracted Gordian to help develop the JOC program. There will be universal pricing provided by Gordian. Job order Contracting Unit Pricing will be set through a Construction Task Catalog. (CTC).  Gordian will customize the technical specifications. “JOC contracts establish Unit Prices up front. Each Unit Price is calculated using localized labor, material and equipment costs, meaning no more hidden charges and surprise costs. Contractors bid an adjustment factor to the catalog of tasks with preset Unit Prices, called the Construction Task Catalog® (CTC). Once a contract is awarded, the contractor can perform a variety of projects, always using the preset prices in the CTC.”

Senate Bill 67

Agencies authorized include Clark County, Las Vegas, North Las Vegas, Henderson and Clark County Water Reclamation. The piolet is set to end June 30, 2025.
