  9. What Makes a Successful JOC Program? “Successful” Contractor Profile Success Relies on Meeting or Exceeding the Following: • Pro-Active Diversification Program & Small Business Subcontracting - JOC Contractors: • Reach out to Local Subcontractors. • Establish “Mentoring” Program to assist smaller Subcontractors. • Play an activerole in meeting diversification program priorities

  10. Contract AdministrationDiversification Opportunities Increase Minority & Small Contractor Opportunities • 75% of all Work may be subcontracted • Contractor submits Subcontracting Plan at time of proposal submission. • Contractor submits Subcontractor List & diversification program information with each Job Order • Failure of Contractor to voluntarily comply with the diversification program could jeopardize future work.
