A man after my own heart.

Let the bureaucracy stew in their own bureaucracy.

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  
days later.

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.

Good for you Bob,

Back in my day the 70's and early 80's payments were a little different..

But glad you were able to have a good working relationship with the  
government in your area..

*****************************************
Every single job I did for the feds (whatever agency) was because somebody I  
knew asked me to bid it.  That may have made a difference.  I never got a  
single job just because I was on the government bid list.  All that got me  
was harrassed by companies wanting to sell me their services to teach me how  
to be a government contractor.  Well that and a few calls from generals who  
thought all specialties were stupid and not only deserve, but are asking to  
be screwed.  LOL.  Well and a few stupid calls.  "I am price shopping for a  
part #1221431234-`12341234-1234125412-dsfgfg.  Can you price match  
Giga-Corps quantity 10K price?  I just need one."
