As we are all aware this is a very challenging environment due to the ongoing federal budget impasse. As we navigate this situation it is our intent to be transparent and forthright. As a result of what could be a protracted federal shutdown, Sandia is operating using only limited prior-year carryover funds. The National Nuclear Security Administration asked Sandia to prepare for a safe, secure, and orderly shutdown of the Laboratories' work by close of business Monday, Oct. 21, 2013.
The Laboratories is implementing a broad range of measures to manage expenses, including curtailment of costs incurred through contracts. Sandia will be deferring new purchases as well as applying stop work orders to existing contract work. We are currently determining which contracts will receive a stop work order or continue beyond October 21st. A Sandia Contracting Representative or the Sandia Supply Chain Director will notify you shortly of the status of your contract(s). Thank you for the support and services you provide Sandia National Laboratories.
