Buying-in, as used in this section, means submitting an offer below anticipated costs, expecting to–
(1) Increase the contract amount after award (e.g., through unnecessary or excessively priced change orders); or
(2) Receive follow-on contracts at artificially high prices to recover losses incurred on the buy-in contract.
