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.

My name is _____________, I am a constituent and [owner/founder/president] of [business name]. 

As a woman-owned small business contractor, I am calling to urge the Congress[woman/man] to co-sponsor H.R. 5337, the Accelerated Payments for Small Business Act of 2018.

This bill is crucial for small business contractors, like me, because it would direct federal agencies to make payments to small business prime contractors within 15 days of sending an invoice. This is a common issue for small business contractors who rely on a consistent flow of income in order to be able to continue to serve their customer – the federal government. Ensuring prompt payment for small business contractors will help provide stability for companies who suffer large consequences when payments are delayed.  

Please ask the Congress(man/woman) to support H.R. 5337 and consider cosponsoring the bill. 

Thank you for your time.
