The information required periodically from the contractor--such as cost of work already performed, estimated costs of further performance necessary to complete all work, total contract price for supplies or services accepted by the Government for which final prices have been established, and estimated costs allocable to supplies or services accepted by the Government and for which final prices have not been established--is needed to negotiate the final prices of incentive-related items and services. The contracting officer evaluates the information received to determine the contractor’s performance in meeting the incentive target and the appropriate price revision, if any, for the items or services.
