5 stars out of 5 based on 4 user ratings.

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. The current version of the chart has been updated to include two Department of Defense deviations to the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR), changes to Department of  Defense Instruction (DoDI) 5000.02, Operation of the Defense Acquisition System (Incorporating Change 4, August 31, 2018), and updates to the Defense Acquisition Guidebook (DAG).

On the reverse side of the Chart is additional information on contract types, pricing arrangements, and incentives used in Defense Systems Management College (DSMC) courses at the Defense Acquisition University (DAU).

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