Government Shutdown Resource Center
On March 23, Congress passed, and the president signed, an omnibus appropriations act providing $1.3 trillion in funding for the balance of Fiscal Year 2018, staving off the threat of a government shutdown until September 30.
Previously, the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018, enacted on February 9, raised statutory caps for both defense and non-defense accounts, and providing continuing appropriations. Before these agreements were reached, in late January, a three-day government shutdown occurred due to a lapse in funding before a three-week Continuing Resolution was enacted.
Even a short-term shutdown can have a significant impact, and it is essential that contractors understand the implications on their operations and what actions they can take during and following the shutdown. The information and resources below address a number of these key questions and will be updated and added to as new developments take place.
Current and past guidance for selected agencies is available below, with additional agency guidance available from the OMB Repository of Agency Contingency Plans
We encourage PSC members to send us information
about problems, challenges, and issues arising from the shutdown, as well as any information received from the government.
