Assigning Fixed Costs and Fixed Contract Fees

For some tasks, you might have costs that aren't linked to a particular resource you have named. This type of cost is called a fixed cost and is entered in the Fixed Cost column of the Cost table on a task view such as the Gantt Chart. You can also have a cost that is associated with a resource but that is not affected by the task duration or any variations in work for the resource. For instance, the resource might be a contractor or vendor who is to deliver the completed task at a fixed cost. In these cases, the cost is entered as part of the assignment information on the Task Form.

If there is a cost associated with the task that is not affected by the task duration and you have not named a resource that is associated with this cost, you can enter the amount in the Fixed Cost field for the task. Project adds the fixed cost amount to the total of the resource costs and displays the sum in the Cost (Total Cost) column of various views.
