NECA Supports Bipartisan Bill Introduced to Ensure Small Business Federal Contractors Get Paid

May 23, 2017

Fitzpatrick, Knight and Murphy Introduce HR 2594; NECA Among Supporting Organizations

NECA thanks Representatives Fitzpatrick, Knight, and Murphy for their bipartisan efforts to help small firms in the construction industry. We are proud to offer our strong support for the Small Business Payment for Performance Act [H.R. 2594] and are pleased to see its introduction in the House of Representatives. This commonsense bill to address payment issues in federal construction will help small businesses recover an interim partial payment of at least 50 percent for additional change order work performed,” said Marco A. Giamberardino, Executive Director, Government Affairs, for the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA). “The benefits of this legislation are clear: transparency in federal construction contracting and providing contractors with a predictable flow of funds from the federal government to contractors for the work they perform. This legislation will help meet this goal.”
