The cost-plus-incentive-fee contract is a cost-reimbursement contract that provides for the initially negotiated fee to be adjusted later by a formula based on the relationship of total allowable costs to total target costs. Appropriate for services or development and test programs.

A cost-plus-award-fee contract is a cost-reimbursement contract that provides for a fee consisting of: (1) a base amount fixed at inception of the contract, if applicable and at the discretion of the Contracting Officer, and (2) an award amount that the contractor may earn in whole or in part during performance.
