Message from Hugh Montgomery: Update on Government Shutdown (Oct. 17)
The Federal government reopens for business this morning, so we will also be taking steps to return Jefferson Lab to a more normal mode of operation. We have been advised by DOE officials that they will move as fast as possible to distribute funding to the field - us. However, that process will take several days. Until we receive the funding, we need to continue to exercise the austerity measures related to procurement and travel currently in place.
We will keep you updated as things develop and count on your demonstrated professional approach to these efforts and to the safety of you and your colleagues.
