Continuing Resolution Expires April 28, 2017

April 7, 2017

The Continuing Resolution funding government operations will expire on April 28, 2017. Absent a budget agreement or a new CR, certain government operations will cease. While Congress is working on the budget, contractors wishing to plan for the end of the CR and a potential shutdown might consider: (1) maintaining open lines of communication with their customers; (2) cataloguing contracts by funding source, performance period, option exercise dates to assess impact on their businesses, while paying attention to changes clauses for opportunities for mitigation; (3) preparing for human resources impacts on staff; and, (4) reviewing subcontracts to understand rights and obligations on both sides.
