Spanish term or phrase: Contrato de locación de obra por ajuste alzado absoluto
I am translating a contract in Argentina. The title is Contrato de locación de obra (Contract for building work) por ajuste alzado absoluto. I do not know how to translate this part. It means that the parties establish the price in the contract and it is not going to vary in any way. How is it translated?

Or perhaps "construction contract without sharing debtor asset information"
or something to the effect

I think I can include this as a note explaining the type of contract. What do you think of Construction contract without expenses adjustment?
Thanks

  -> That's good. I already changed the answer for the glossary. - Thanks - Mike :)

neutral  John Rynne: Michael, could you possibly change your answer to remove all that "conceal assets" stuff, which is totally off the mark here. You run the risk of confusing people who come across this page via Google
