This Price Activity Matrix (PAM) specification should be used for all acute activity and cost data including contracted plans where a contract exists. In practice this PAM mirrors the ACM format  but the month that the file refers (Field #1) is set to zero. The activity plan (Field #19) and the Price plan (Field #20) should include the annual activity and financial plan figures.
