   Bonus/penalty rules  evaluated  
Procurement contracts often foresee penalty payments for the case that certain requirements (e.g. maximum maintenance costs) are not fulfilled by manufacturers. So-called bonus / penalty rules, i.e. additional agreements on bonus payments for the case of "over-performance", could improve the role of energy-relevant parameters such as efficiency of traction equipment or mass per seat in the design of railway vehicles.
