A follow up question: Do you have any tips on being paid more promptly by federal government agencies, departments and entities?

Answer: Sure, first remember the government wants to pay bills as they come due. Paying on time makes life easier for everyone. Remember to be courteous to the people you speak to when you call about payment…because they may be able to help you to understand exactly what steps you need to take to get paid quickly. Do not short ship and back order unless you know the government entity wants, needs and will accept and pay for partial shipments.
