Neil,
This may not have occurred to you, but woe is the contractor, of any size, that is a sub to a small business. Small businesses, who frequently prime large contracts with teams of subs, including large and small companies, are famous for paying late. Most subs have no recourse other than going to the Federal client, or the sub's board of directors, or just stop work. The point is, primes of all sizes, and almost certainly far more commonly, small-biz primes slow-pay or no-pay their subs.
I love these rules, a whole new field for legal and administrative practitioners and a new kind of agoniste that will populate the swell (swill?) world of gov contracting, eh?
