  • Given the numerous compensation methods under Government Contract (i.e. FAR Part 16), we will examine how the contract type influences Contractor's decision makers when planning, proposing and reporting financial results.  Dealing with the risks and uncertainty is the rule, not the exception.  The contract type may be cost reimbursable or fixed price with numerous variations in-between.
