Appropriations Lapse Could Result in NASA Furloughs

NASA Internal Memo: Planning for Potential Lapse in Appropriations

"However, prudent management requires that we be prepared for all contingencies, including the possibility that a lapse could occur at the end of the month. A lapse would mean that a number of government activities would cease due to a lack of appropriated funding. It would also mean that a number of employees would be temporarily furloughed. To prepare for this possibility, we are working with our General Counsel and our Chief Financial Officer to update our contingency plans for executing an orderly shutdown of activities that would be affected by a lapse in appropriations."

NASA Ames Federal Employees Union Memo: Potential Shutdown Looming Yet Again

"With the turmoil of the DOI snafu and its 4-day delay in paychecks fresh on our minds, you need to be acutely aware that a shutdown could have a much bigger financial impact on you and your family, especially given that we would not likely receive retroactive pay as we did after the shutdowns of the 1990's.  Please act accordingly and keep some funds in reserve, if you possibly can."
