Pagos a sub-contratistas federales (Payments to Small Business Subcontractors)

Saludos,

En enero de este año el Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) fue actualizado para requerirle a todo contratista federal que informe cualquier reducción o demora en los pagos a sus sub-contratistas. Este cambio debe ayudar a los negocios pequeño que actúan como sub-contratistas de compañías grandes.

A continuación, les incluyo el texto de la cláusula. Si desean información adicional sobre este tema o cualquier otro tema relacionado a las ventas al Gobierno Federal podemos coordinar una llamada de conferencia. Recuerden que todos nuestros servicios son completamente libres de costos.
