When I invoiced by purchase order I usually got paid by the federal
government in 30-45 days. (Often quicker.) When they switched to big
ticket credit cards I got paid within days of presenting the invoice
along with a sign off of job approval. Sometimes the same day. Somebody
would just call me up with a credit card number. Now a certain airplane
manufacturer who might have had something to do with the marine
adversary squadron back in the early 90s didn't pay for months until I
sent a letter to the Commandant of the Marine Corps informing him I
would be filing a lien against his marine base if payment wasn't
received very soon. The payment check arrived Fed-Ex overnight a couple
I never did huge jobs for the feds. $8,000-$25,000 usually, but they
were big for me. I never experienced third party caused delays either,
but I did have my guy at the Army procurement office tell me if that was
ever an issue I could get progressive payments for equipment delivered
or portions of work completed. I think GSA told me the same, but most
of my jobs for them were pretty small. Max maybe $9k. Most in the
$2-4K range, and by the time they called me in everything was ready to go.
