SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Purpose

    Incentive contracts are normally used when a firm fixed-price 
contract is not appropriate and the required supplies or services can 
be acquired at lower costs, and sometimes with improved delivery or 
technical performance, by relating the amount of profit or fee payable 
under the contract to the contractor's performance.
    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.
