What can a subcontractor do if they were not paid by the M&M contractor for the work they performed?

Subcontractors seeking payment for work performed for a HUD Management and Marketing (M&M) contractor may be able to obtain assistance by contacting the Wage and Hour Division of the Department of Labor (DOL).

The sub-contractor may file a civil suit against the prime contractor.

Absent either the civil court ruling or DOL decision, HUD has no direct mechanism to enforce subcontractor payment.
