When authorized in the contract, DFAS can make payments of 80%* or more of the accumulated costs on certain items. *(In accordance with the terms of the contract.)

  7. PERFORMANCE BASED PAYMENTS • Performance based payment is an alternative to progress payments for contract financing. The financing is based upon specified performance criteria being accomplished versus cost accumulation which is the basis for progress payments.

  8. Performance Based Payments • Finance is based upon certain specified criterion, as stated in the contract. • Our office does conduct periodic physical reviews of progress payments. • Payment of a milestone is based upon 100% completion. If the entire event is not completed, there is no partial payment.

Performance Based Payments • Method of providing financing to contractors performing under fixed-price, non-commercial contracts, or fixed price items on a mixed type contract • Payments are based upon contractor performance of specified criteria uniquely established for each contract containing Performance Based Payment

  10. Performance Based Payments • Performance-Based Payments are NOT Advance Payments • Performance-Based Payments are Not meant to induce contractors to achieve performance levels that exceed contract requirements • Performance Based Payment amounts should represent expenses that contractor can reasonably be expected to incur in order to achieve completion of each defined criteria or event
