    As a small business Prime, are we required to flow 52.232.99 to our subs? As a small business do any of the other socioeconomic requirements apply to us?


    Answer

    FAR 52.232-99 -- Providing Accelerated Payment to Small Business Subcontractors (DEVIATION) prescribes the inclusion of the subject clause in all solicitations and resultant contracts.  As there is not language excepting contracts with Small Business concerns, this clause and it's requirement to "Include the substance of this clause, including this paragraph (b), in all subcontracts with small business concerns," appear to be applicable to all prime contractors regardless of business size.  Final resolution of this matter lies with the cognizant Contracting Officer.
