Fixed fee and incentive fee formula. A method of pricing in which the contractor is paid costs reasonably and properly incurred as determined by audit, together with an agreed upon fixed fee as profit supplemented by an incentive fee which will be paid to the contractor on any savings achieved between a prescribed target cost and the actual cost as established by audit. A target price contract may also include a provision for a ceiling price.

The target price for 1986 corn is $3.03 per bushel. (See DEFICIENCY PAYMENTS.)
A value set by brokers for a company share price to go up or down to. If a company has a current share price of £2, and a broker sets a target price off £3, they are expecting a 50 per cent growth in a market capitalisation, and would therefore rate this company as a strong buy recommendation
