Introducing the Federal Prompt Payment for Construction Work Act

February 21, 2024 (10:00 AM - 11:00 AM) (NST)


After several years in the making, on December 9, 2023 this federal prompt payment legislation came into force. On February 21, 2024, join Richard Gosse and Rachel Delaney of the St. John’s office of Cox & Palmer for an overview of this process-driven legislation which is intended to address timeliness of contractor and subcontractor payments, and adjudication of issues that would otherwise hold-up the payment process on construction projects with federal property interests.
