What is the difference between a Cost Rate / Hr and Charge Out Rate / Hr?

The Employee Cost Rate / Hr is used for standard fixed price and Lump Sum claim methods, and the Employee Charge Out Rate / Hr is used for a Cost Plus claim method contract.

Employee Cost Rate / Hr = the amount it costs to employ the worker.

Employee Charge Out Rate / Hr = Employee Cost Rate / Hr + Profit Markup
