Building on previous business relationships is easy and legal when popular, high-quality JOC vendors become Choice Partners awarded vendors.
Members who have a favorite construction or maintenance trades vendor they want to use should encourage that vendor to register to become a bidder with Choice Partners national cooperative so they can compete for a government-awarded contract. (Learn how to become a vendor)
Bidders for the Competitive Sealed Proposal for JOC-Construction Trades may use any of three unit price books: Xactimate (which is used by the Federal Emergency Management Agency and Insurance adjustors); RSMeans; or Craftsman National Construction Estimator, all of which offer a digital option. The CSP is applicable for any division of the CSI Master Format system, which are listed below.
We are asking vendors to provide a coefficient for a maximum of one division covering the type of service they are offering to governmental entities.
The Choice Partners administrative fee for our vendors is lower than most of our co-op competitors, which usually translates to lower prices for our members.
This contract will be legally procured under Government Code 2269.
