  • Hear it from FMA in the FEDManager.com

    By Greg Stanford, FMA Director of Government Affairs 

    The Federal Managers Association (FMA) regularly contributes to the weekly, online newsletter, FEDmanager.com, under the Hear It From FMA column. FMA's most recent article, published on August 28, discusses the ongoing budgetary uncertainty and the problems it causes for not only federal managers, but for the country as a whole. As Congress fails to create a budget, federal agencies and departments are forced to meet missions and goals with stagnant financial resources.

    "Since sequestration began on March 1, 2013, most federal departments moved funds (or eliminated them altogether) to reduce furlough days, finding other ways to cut costs and comply with the law. The Federal Managers Association (FMA) applauded every agency that was able to reduce or forego furloughs completely. Most recently, we were pleased when Department of Defense (DOD) Secretary Chuck Hagel reduced furloughs to six days from the initial twenty-two for more than 650,000 DOD civilian employees, and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) cancelled planned furlough days in July and August.”
