Hi Experts,

I have a query related to contract types FPIF and FPEPA.

Query: I need clarification on Fixed price Incentive fee(FPIF) and Fixed Price Economic Price Adjustment(FPEPA) contracts. Need to exactly understand in what situations do we use these contracts.
1. FPIF: PMBOK doesn't call out the situations where we should use this contract so if you could explain with example, it' be great.
2. FPEPA: PMBOK says that this contract should be used whenever the seller's performance period spans considerable period of years... Can you please explain this? I understood payment in different currency.

Clarifications to this will enable me to answer any queries related to FPIF and FPEPA contracts related queries.

Thanks,
Vivek Gupta

Hi Vivek,

The Fixed Price Incentive Fee (FPIF) provides a financial performance incentive for the supplier. For example, if you have a $1,000,000 contract, you might offer the vendor an extra $1,000 for every month that the vendor completes the contracted work early. This type of contract might be used when time is of the essence. Think about a highway repair project where there is serious impact to commuters for every day the highway is out of service.

The Fixed Price Economic Adjustment (FPEPA) contract is typically used for longer-term contracts where there are uncertainties about future economic conditions. The most common example would be the risk of inflation over the course of the project. In an inflationary economic environment, you might want to include an adjustment to counter the effects of inflation. For example, if inflation is expected to run 10% per year over the course of a 3 year project, you might want to include a 10% price adjustment per year in the contract.

I hope that helps.
