ISSUE: Prompt Payment for Federal Government Contractors
BACKGROUND: House Small Business Committee member, Rep. Steve Knight (R-CA) recently introduced the Accelerated Payments for Small Business Act of 2018 (H.R. 5337) which would direct federal agencies to make payments to small business prime contractors within 15 days of sending an invoice.
This important legislation needs to move quickly to maintain assurance of prompt payment for small business contractors in the federal contracting arena.
ACTION: We need your help to contact your Representative to urge their support for this legislation, and to encourage them to sign on to the bill as a cosponsor.
