Not an opinion but an open forum for anyone contractually savvy to provide their “two cents”. For Prime contract that is either Cost reimbursable, Unit Prices or Time & Material, how true is the notion that risks from the Prime are flowed down to the sub-contracts? Are all costs being eventually paid up by the Customer?
May be you don’t get profits and Overhead on specific overruns, but all sub-contract costs are certainly included. Now how about Prime contracts that are Lumpsum; a different ball game here.These are contracts where risks and opportunities would be borne in its entirety by the contractor.
