An investment exchange is a movement of retirement assets between 403(b) investment providers within the same plan both occupying a "payroll slot" with the employer where contributions, earnings and tax basis amounts are maintained. 

A contract exchange is a movement of retirement assets between a 403(b) investment provider (with a payroll slot) and a 403(b) vendor (who does not occupy a payroll slot) within the same plan where contributions, earnings and tax basis amounts are maintained. 

plan-to-plan transfer is a movement of retirement assets from one employer's 403(b) plan to another employer's 403(b) plan where contributions, earnings and tax basis amounts are maintained.
