Advance payments may be authorized under Federal contracts and
subcontracts. Advance payments are the least preferred method of
contract financing and require special determinations by the agency
head or designee. Specific financial information about the contractor
is required before determinations by the agency head or designee can be
made, and before such payments can be authorized (see FAR 32.4 and
52.232-12). The information is used to determine if advance payments
should be provided to the contractor.
