 About the Award of Excellence

Named for the inventor of Job Order Contracting, the Harry H. Mellon Award of Excellence in Job Order Contracting is the industry’s highest honor. Repair, alteration and maintenance work—the core of the Job Order Contracting system—is essential for the safe and efficient use of buildings and infrastructure. While essential, this work is often not glamorous. This award recognizes the facility owners, managers and contractors who perform this important function in an efficient and cost effective way.

Though there is only one project recognized as the Harry H. Mellon Award of Excellence in Job Order Contracting, there are many other outstanding nominations. Projects using JOC, as well as indefinite quantity construction (IQC) contracts available through cooperative purchasing programs may be recognized as one of the five Awards of Merit in Excellence in Job Order Contracting.

Note: Past Winners were awarded on a geographic basis, however the 2013 awards structure has been changed. This change will not impact the state of past winners; all past winners will still be recognized as such.
