Jamail & Smith Construction awarded The Cooperative Purchasing Network (TCPN)
Job Order Contract for Constructive Services
(July 30, 2010 - Austin, Texas) - Jamail & Smith Construction has been awarded The Cooperative Purchasing Network (TCPN) Job Order Contract (JOC), to be the provider of construction services for TCPN members. This contract is a fixed price, indefinite quantity contract that includes multiple construction, renovation, repair and alteration projects delivered on an on-call basis through job orders. The contract is unique because it offers alternative pricing data which maximizes accuracy and job application.
TCPN is a national governmental purchasing cooperative that provides commodity and service contracts for use by public entities. By using a cooperative contract, the customer benefits from the buying power of the entire cooperative membership. Some of the many benefits of using JOC via a coop are: the contracts are pre-competed, therefore greatly reducing procurement time and cost; projects can be started and completed faster and cost less without sacrificing quality; and projects create opportunities for local, minority and women owned businesses to participate in the work because the contractor "bundles" subcontract packages for maximum local and MWBE/HUB inclusion.
Jamail & Smith Construction is able to efficiently execute bond issues, help owners catch up on backlog of deferred maintenance, serve as an on-call contractor and respond to emergencies, natural disasters or project workload increases via any of these cooperative purchasing contracts. As long as the customer is a member of the coop, Jamail & Smith Construction can execute work as soon as a job order is issued.
We are excited to be teaming up with TCPN to offer construction services through job order contracting to qualifying members across Texas," said Greg Smith, PE - Executive Vice President & Partner for Jamail & Smith Construction. "We employ over 100 JOC professionals, skilled at exceeding expectations for quality, committed to meeting every challenge with creative solutions that will consistently set new standards for delivering maximum value for TCPN members."
