The Prompt Payment rule makes sure that valid and proper invoices submitted by vendors are paid on time by federal agencies. If a vendor submits a proper and valid invoice, the agency must pay it on time. If not, the payment is late.
In most cases when an agency pays a vendor late, it must pay interest. Prompt Payment determines those interest penalties and provides a variety of related resources for agency use.
The prompt payment interest rate for July 1, 2018 – December 31, 2018 is 3.500 percent.
