It is well known that the Federal Government in general, and DoD in particular, discourages agencies from using the Time & Materials (T&M) contract type.

  • Why is that?
  • Describe a scenario where the T&M contract type is likely to be the best contract type despite the “discouragement”.
  • You’re a Federal Contracting Specialist and your Division Head refuses to let you use a T&M contract type despite your sound rationale. So, is it ethical for to structure the solicitation for a Firm Fixed Price (FFP) or Cost Plus Fixed Fee (CPFF) contract type so that the contract will act like a T&M contract even though it technically isn’t? For example, would it be ethical to add “Fee Reduction Clause” if the contractor doesn’t meet a certain number of labor hours?
