1. A R&D project manager wants to go for the contracting, he picks
the preferred seller who is working with his organization for long
time. He want to have a good relation with seller and get his work done
as he need. What type of contract he will sign-up with the seller.

a. Fixed price plus incentive contracts

b. Cost plus fixed fee (CPFF)

c. Cost plus incentive fee (CPIF)

Since its research project it should be CPFF

In R&D projects the scope and deliverables changes frequentely, will the CPFF motivate the seller?

Cost plus contracts are not that complicated. This is one of the things that a lot of people has have been interested with. - Marla Ahlgrimm
