Sorry about the irrelevant questions from the intro assistant. This is a matter for negotiation. Generally the contractor only gets the benefit of lower actual cost when he gives a fixed firm price. The type of contract you seem to be describing is a cost plus contract. In a cost plus arrangement the contractor makes a percentage over the actual cost.
