suppliers have been made from previous payments received under the 
contract and timely payments will be made from the proceeds of the 
payment covered by the certification, and that this payment request 
does not include any amount which the contractor intends to withhold 
from a subcontractor/supplier.
    Paragraphs (e) and (g) of the clause at FAR 52.232-27, Prompt 
Payment for Construction Contracts, require contractors to notify the 
Government regarding any withheld amounts of a progress payment to a 
subcontractor, the specific cause for the withholding, and the remedial 
action to be taken by the subcontractor.
