U.S. Government Maintains List of Agency Contingency Plans in Case of Shutdown

The United States federal government – specifically the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) serving the U.S. President – maintains a list of Agency Contingency Plans in case of a shutdown that could be caused if Congress fails to enact legislation to fund appropriations bills or pass a continuing funding resolution before the new fiscal year begins on October 1, 2023. 

Below are the links to contingency plans for some agencies across the Federal Government that will take effect if Congress cannot enact the necessary legislation to fund government spending by midnight on September 30, 2023. The following plans – which include the date they were last updated and may be updated in the future – could affect some private employers.

A shutdown of the United States federal government during a lapse in appropriations when Congress fails to pass legislation funding government operations and agencies has occurred several times. According to information from Wikipdia.com, there have been U.S. government shutdowns in 1980, 1981, 1984, 1986, 1990, 1995-1996, 2013, 2018, and 2018-2019.
