FDLP

Government Shutdown

Congress has not passed an appropriation for FY 2014 or a Continuing Resolution to allow Government agencies to continue normal operations. Therefore, like all Federal agencies, GPO is preparing for a Government shutdown beginning at midnight on Tuesday, October 1, 2013. During a furlough due to a Government shutdown, GPO employees can only work on activities directly related to the legislative process, and on activities for an orderly shutdown and to protect property and assets.

Effective October 1, 2013, all staff of Library Services and Content Management (LSCM) will be furloughed due to the funding lapse. GPO will not be updating gpo.gov, FDLP.gov, the Catalog of Government Publications, Ben’s Guide, or be responding to askGPO questions until funding is restored. The Laurel warehouse will be closed so there will be no shipments to depository libraries.

Congressional materials will continue to be processed and posted to FDsys. Federal Register services on FDsys will be limited to documents that protect life and property. The remaining collections on FDsys will not be updated and will resume after funding is restored.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause our Federal Depository Library partners and the patrons you serve.
