SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

A. OMB Number, Title, and Any Associated Form(s)

    9000-0071, Price Redetermination.

B. Needs and Uses

    FAR 16.205, Fixed-price contracts with prospective price 
redetermination, provides for firm fixed prices for an initial period 
of the contract and prospective redetermination of the price, at stated 
times during performance, during subsequent periods of performance. 
Prospective price redetermination is used in negotiated contracts when 
it is possible to establish a firm fixed price for an initial period, 
but not for subsequent periods of contract performance. FAR clause 
52.216-5, Price Redetermination-Prospective, is included in these 
solicitations and contracts and requires a contractor to submit to the 
Government--
     Within an agreed upon timeframe, (1) proposed prices for 
the upcoming contract period, (2) a statement of costs incurred for the 
most recent period of performance, and (3) any supporting or relevant 
documentation; and,
     During periods where firm prices have not been 
established, a quarterly statement that includes a breakdown of total 
contract prices, costs, and profit incurred and all invoices accepted 
for delivered items or services for which final prices have not been 
established.
    FAR 16.206, Fixed price contracts with retroactive price 
redetermination, provides for a fixed ceiling price, and retroactive 
price redetermination within the ceiling after completion of the 
contract. Retroactive price redetermination is used in research and 
development contracts valued at $150,000 or less when a firm fixed 
price cannot be negotiated and the contract amount and short 
performance period make the use of any other fixed-price contract type 
impracticable. FAR clause 52.216-6, Price Redetermination--Retroactive, 
is included in these solicitations and contracts and requires 
contractors to submit to the Government--
     Within an agreed upon timeframe after completion of the 
contract, (1) the proposed prices, (2) all costs incurred in performing 
the contract, and (3) any supporting or relevant documentation; and,
     Until final price redetermination has been completed, a 
quarterly statement that includes a breakdown of total contract prices, 
costs, and interim profit incurred and all invoices accepted for 
delivered items.
    Contracting officers use the information submitted by respondents 
to accurately determine the price adjustments to be made under the 
contract or order in accordance with the clause.
