What is Cost-Plus Pricing?

A cost-plus construction contract is a type of agreement where the contractor is reimbursed for all the direct costs incurred during the project, plus an additional percentage or fixed fee to cover the contractor's overhead and profit.

Cost-plus contracts provide a high level of transparency, as the business owner can see all the costs associated with the project, including materials, labor, equipment, and subcontractor fees.

Cost-plus contracts are flexible and can accommodate changes to the project scope or design relatively easily, which is particularly useful in construction projects where changes may be necessary.

Quality Control

With a cost-plus contract, the business owner has more control over the selection of materials and subcontractors, which can help ensure high-quality materials and skilled subcontractors are used.

Faster Project Start

Contractors may be more motivated to start the project quickly, as their profit is tied to their expenses, which can help expedite the commencement of the construction.

Reduced Risk

In a cost-plus contract, the business owner assumes less financial risk for cost overruns compared to a fixed-price contract, as cost overruns are shared between the owner and the contractor.

Incentive for cost savings

Some cost-plus contracts include a cost-sharing mechanism that incentivizes the contractor to find cost savings, as the contractor may receive a percentage of the cost savings as an additional fee.

Detailed Documentation

Cost-plus contracts often require thorough documentation of all expenses, providing a clear record of how funds are allocated throughout the project, which can be helpful for auditing and financial tracking purposes.
