We worked for the main FEMA contractor. We have done a few storms. All held 10%, and all but one paid us our retainer within a reasonable amount of time. One held it so long we wrote it off until they got audited and had to pay us. Other than that we would turn in our tickets at the end of the week and get paid the next week.
Most of the FEMA contracts are in place long before a storm hits. We never worked 24/7. We only worked daytime hours. Not sure how that changes things for you. All we did was the hauling portion. Never did demo/ROW clearing/etc.
