JOC, SABER – IPD that works.

Job Order Contracting (JOC), and Simplified Acquisition of Base Engineering Requirements (SABER) are both forms of Integrated Project Delivery (IPD). They are collaborative, transparent, performance-based construction delivery methods that significantly improve productivity vs. traditional design-bid-build. Procurement and project timelines are decreased, change orders are virtually non-existent, and longer term relationships exist between Owners, Contractors and AE’s. SABER and JOC are standardized business process that can be adapted to particular Owner requirements. As such, they are an agreed upon, proven, and repeatable way of handling diverse facility renovation, repair, and sustainability projects. A standard is a collective work that is created by bringing together the expertise and experience of all interested parties. e4Clicks Project Estimator software embeds JOC, SABER and other construction delivery methods to enable rapid, scalable, and consistent deployment, thus providing a supporting technology framework to improve overall performance.
