CRS: Shutdown Could Hit Military Training, Contractor Pay

PentagonThe U.S. Congressional Research Service says the ongoing federal government shutdown could disrupt military training programs and delay contracting activities, Defense One reported Wednesday.

Charles Clark writes CRS analysts predict that although the government may continue to sign contracts, it may not be able to disburse payments to contractors due to a lapse in appropriations.

“This could create some confusion and, potentially, disruptions to supplies of some material and services, particularly if full funding for the Defense Department is not restored soon,” a CRS analysis says, according to the report.

CRS believes the Pentagon, amid the shutdown, will carry out training based on the combat units’ deployment area and force generation strategy, Clark writes.
