If you work in the Government acquisition world, this podcast is for you. (not just for Contracting Officers!)

FAR Part 16.401 describes incentive contracts. Incentives fall into 3 general categories: cost, performance, and schedule.
Kevin and Paul discuss performance incentives (FAR 16.402-2) and provide an overview of how performance incentives are structured.
Learn why it is critical to clearly communicate what performance is important and how that performance will be measured and assessed. Remember that the law of unintended consequences can wreak havoc on any incentive contract! Know what you’re really incentivizing. Be sure to understand the additional costs involved in managing incentives.
