Comparison of Major Contract Types Chart

Light to dark gray gradient background with grainy texture


Last Updated : 01/30/2023

Description

The Comparison of Major Contract Types Chart is based on the information in the Contract Pricing Reference Guides (Volume 4 – Advanced Issues in Contract Pricing, Chapter 1 - Establishing And Monitoring Contract Type), and updated for statutory/regulatory/policy changes and court decisions that have not been included in the Guides.

On the reverse side of the Chart is additional information on contract types, pricing arrangements, and incentives used at the Defense Acquisition University (DAU). The current version of the chart has been updated to account for changes resulting from the Department of Defense issuing a final rule amending the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) to implement section 817 of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year (FY) 2022 (Pub. L. 117–81), which repeals section 829 of the NDAA for FY 2017 (Pub. L. 114– 328) and for the elimination of the Defense Acquisition Guidebook (DAG). All of the changes are to the mini charts on the reverse of the handout.

The chart is formatted for duplex, two-sided, printing on 11 x 17 paper.
