This topic is designed for both new and experienced contract professionals. It explains the fundamentals of fixed price and cost-plus contracts, which dominate the field of project delivery methods. We will explore the incentives, risks, and administration-specifics associated with each type. We then will examine how these methods enable collusion, kickbacks, and fraud, and we will engage in a short case study of well-known projects demonstrating these issues. The topic will provide advice and practice considerations for avoiding these pitfalls.

The primary objective of this topic is to provide contract professionals with a competent understanding of these project delivery methods, their implications, and the current legal landscape, all to help better carry out their projects.
