Potential Federal Government Shutdown Memo

The purpose of this memo is to provide information and guidance in the event of a federal government shutdown resulting from Congress failing to adopt a temporary funding measure for the federal fiscal year 2014 (which begins October 1, 2013) and/or failing to increase the federal debt ceiling by mid-October.  These events could create some potential challenges for spending accounts in the General Federal Grants Fund, for which the Executive Office for Administration and Finance (A&F) and the Comptroller’s Office (CTR) are requesting information from your agency on prospective impacts and mitigation actions.
