Arslan,

We explain this in detail in episode E12.01 Plan Procurements.

Please watch that episode for the explanation. We show a table that explains who (buyer or seller) has more risk for each contract.

Also, here are the official abbreviations for the contracts:
Firm Fixed Price: FFP
Fixed Price Incentive Fee: FPIF
Fixed Price Economic Price Adjust: FP-EPA
Cost Plus Fixed Fee: CPFF
Cost Plus Incentive Fee: CPIF
Cost Plus Award Fee: CPAF
Time and Material: T&M
Until Next Time,

Arslan,

I apologize! I didn't realize that you had the 3rd edition.

Please also disregard the abbreviations of the contracts that I mentioned earlier. They are from the 4th edition.

So under this light, you are right that FP = low, TM = medium and CR = high from the buyers perspective.

You can also read the following article - they explain each contract type and the risk involved:
