LIVE EVENT: Agency Operations in the Absence of Regular Appropriations

Do you understand what employees can and cannot do during a funding gap and government shutdown?

There is a possibility that federal agencies could be working under a Continuing Resolution when Fiscal Year 2024 begins. Join us Thursday, September 7th, 2023 at 12 PM EDT for a refresher on the do’s and don’ts of conducting business during a Continuing Resolution (CR). This interactive session will prepare you to:

  • Differentiate between a regular appropriation and a CR
  • Identify limitations and guidance when operating under a CR
  • Execute your CR, accomplish your mission, and avoid Antideficiency Act (ADA) violations

Be better equipped to conduct business operations under a Continuing Resolution. (1 CPE)
