Federal Government Reopens

On October 17, 2013, the President signed into law H.R. 2775, the Continuing Appropriations Act, 2014, providing fiscal year 2014 appropriations for the federal government through January 15, 2014, ending the 2013 federal shutdown. The effective time for the continuing resolution begins on October 1, 2013.

Federal agencies are providing procedures for resumption of business, including updates on proposal submission deadlines and funding for pending awards.

See Impact of Federal Shutdown on Sponsored Projects on the SPO web site for the guidance received from these federal agencies. SPO will continue to update this page as more information is provided.
