Government Shutdown Resources

Last week the Coalition provided shutdown information for our members in anticipation of the current stalemate.  This week we have continued to provide updates to our members regarding the operational mechanics of the shutdown.  On Tuesday, Beth Ferrell, Partner at McKenna Long & Aldridge LLP, was my guest on “Off the Shelf” and discussed the shutdown process, including useful information for contractors in dealing with the government during this difficult time.  Also on Tuesday the Coalition provided an update on GSA operations during the shutdown. Last night the Coalition provided members with the notice that due to the shutdown GSA has suspended the OASIS procurement indefinitely.   Below is a current list of shutdown information available on our website for your review.
