SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

A. Purpose

    In accordance with FAR 16.4, 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. Contractors are required to submit the 
information in accordance with several incentive fee FAR clauses: FAR 
52.216-16, Incentive Price Revision--Firm Target; FAR 52.216-17, 
Incentive Price Revision--Successive Targets; and FAR 52.216-10, 
Incentive Fee.
    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.

C. Public Comments

will have practical utility; whether our estimate of the public burden 
of this collection of information is accurate, and based on valid 
assumptions and methodology; ways to enhance the quality, utility, and 
clarity of the information to be collected; and ways in which we can
