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."

Keith's note: NASA NSSC employees are getting this memo today from DOI (who does NASA payroll). Looks like it may affect other parts of NASA. Someone at NASA HQ who uses NFCU got a direct deposit but another person at NASA HQ who uses a regular bank did not.

September 12, 2013 MEMORANDUM
To: FPPS User Group Representatives
From: Linda Y. Rihel-Todd, Chief //signed//
Payroll Operations Division
Subject: Correction Electronic Funds Transfer for Pay Period 2013-19

The Official Pay Date for all agencies is the second Tuesday following the end of the pay period. Generally payments are provided to Financial Institutions for an early deposit prior to the Official Pay Date. This is routinely accomplished by the first Friday following the end of the pay period. An oversight occurred during the certification process for pay period 2013 19, which inadvertently disbursed the EFT payments after the Friday, September 13, 2013. Efforts to process a new payment file with Department of Treasury was unsuccessful. Therefore, the payments will be made by the Official Pay Date, September 17, 2013. Next pay period we will resume to our normal processing. We apologize for any inconvenience to employees. We recommend you distribute this memorandum or information to your Servicing Personnel.

Keith's 12:50 pm EDT update: The following memo is now being sent around NASA:
