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.
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.
