Contract milestone

Logical stages, steps or chunks of work in the contract. Milestones are often used as a strategy to control the quality of contract results by tying payments to specific delivery or completion milestones. The contractor must successfully complete each milestone before they are paid and before they can move onto the next phase of work—controlling both project delays and scope creep.
