The use of the award fee contract is an unique incentive structure that provides the Government's method of subjective, after the fact evaluation of contractor performance and affords the Government additional flexibility to reward and motivate the contractor for above average performance. Use of cost-plus-award-fee and fixed-price-award-fee has many applications at the Field Contracting Activity level. The use of award fee contracts has many benefits and costs not associated with other types of incentives contracts. To better facilitate its use, barriers will need to be recognized that are preventing more applications at the field level and what can be done to overcome these barriers.
