FEB. 8, 2018: MESSAGE FROM MARIE GREENING, DCMA DEPUTY DIRECTOR

Teammates,

While Congress is moving towards another continuing resolution (CR) to fund the government through 23 March, it may or may not be passed before the current CR's midnight expiration deadline. That said, all Defense Contract Management Agency employees should report to work as scheduled Friday, February 9 for either their regular duty or to participate in orderly shutdown procedures. Employees are also asked to input regular time through today in DAI.

In the event of a lapse of appropriation, as part of your orderly shutdown, log KE for your regular work schedule for date 9 February through the 17 February end of the pay period.

In the event of a shorter shutdown, timecards can be adjusted, upon your return, and prior to pay period end.

The detailed guidance I sent out yesterday is repeated below and remains germane.

Thank you again for your patience and professionalism.

Respectfully,
Marie Greening
Deputy Director, DCMA

 

FEB. 7, 2018: MESSAGE FROM MARIE GREENING, DCMA DEPUTY DIRECTOR

Teammates,

As we are all aware, the current Federal continuing resolution will expire at 11:59 p.m., Thursday February 8, unless an appropriations budget or another continuing resolution is passed. I’m hopeful one will be passed, but we are preparing for an orderly shutdown on Friday February 9 in case one is required.

The repetition of these shutdown deadlines can be difficult and wearing. Every one of us is important to DCMA’s role of delivering to the warfighter, and I sincerely appreciate your patience and professionalism during this time.

Regardless of Congressional actions by tomorrow night, all Defense Contract Management Agency employees should report to work as scheduled Friday, February 9 for either regular duty or to participate in orderly shutdown procedures. If you are authorized to telework, you may receive your furlough notification remotely instead of coming into work, but this should be pre-coordinated with your supervisor.

Employees not scheduled to work on Friday must be available to receive guidance from their leadership chain. They and their supervisors must refer to Question 4 in the FAQ section of this email for options on how to proceed. The orderly shutdown may be accomplished remotely, but employees must coordinate this with their supervisors.

Military personnel on active duty, including reserve component personnel on Federal active duty, are not subject to furlough and will continue to report for duty.

Contractors should check with their Contracting Officer’s Representative and company leadership for guidance.

Communicating with everyone during this time is difficult. We will continue to provide updated information through our public homepage at www.dcma.mil. Please also review this general information and frequently asked questions.

Respectfully,
Marie Greening
Deputy Director, DCMA
