    In R & D contracting will the contractors be allowed to work , if there is a Government shutdown: if so does the avaialbility of funds of the next fiscal year apply.


    Answer

    If the contract is fully funded, and the work will be performed at the contractor's site, and not in a Government facility, the potential Government shut down has no impact on contract performance. R&D funds are two year monies, so if there is no additional funding this year, you can still use R&D funding from last year (if available) to put on the contract and continue work. If the contract is partially funded with R&D funds, you should add additional funds now to ensure the contractor does not run out in a subsequent shut down.
