CPFF Contracts (and subcontracts) - Get the Fee You Deserve

The form of Cost Reimbursement contract most commonly used by USAID is CPFF, or Cost plus Fixed Fee.  These contracts come in two forms – “term” or “completion” and the form mostly refers to how the fixed fee will be paid.
Not understanding the difference and managing your billing correctly under these different types of CPFF contracts can lead to much disappointment and often lost fees.
