Thank you  amol_joshi ;link you posted is really helpful

 In CPIF contract, Seller fee (Incentive fee) is determined objectively meaning some mathematical calculations are involved. We have formula to calculate this incentive

 
In CPAF contract, Seller fee (Award fee) is determined subjectively meaning customer can give if they are satisfied, irrespective of the performance, cannot be disputed
 
You can even simply google whats the difference between Objective/Subjective..it may help

 Thank you Geethika,appreciated

An fascinating discussion is value comment. I think that it is best to write extra on this matter, it won’t be a taboo topic however generally people are not enough to talk on such topics. To the next. Cheers
