Congress has passed a continuing resolution to take the government through the start of the new fiscal year. Robert Shea, principal at Grant Thornton Public Sector, says that while a continuing resolution kicks the proverbial can down the road, the negotiations in late November will be extremely complicated.
“Happy Thanksgiving. It will be tumultuous to get an agreement in place. That’s the time when OMB submits their passback on what agencies are likely to get for their FY21 requests. A busy time, and I have to smoke a turkey,” Shea said.
