I’m a federal contractor already but almost all of my awards have been firm fixed priced... will pursuing cost-reimbursement contracts affect my approach to compensation?

"Congratulations on your success so far in winning federal contracts. But moving into the world of cost-reimbursement contracts will affect your approach to compensation in three significant ways: (1) in the nature of the compensation costs that can be incurred on government contracts; (2) in the minimum salary and benefits that must be paid to employees for work under certain types of contracts; and (3) in the maximum amount of compensation costs that the government will allow."
