Defense Department Comptroller Robert Hale believes the Pentagon is more likely to not award contract options or award new contracts if sequestration takes effect March 1.

The Pentagon plans to continue making contract payments on time for current contracts and does not plan to cancel current contracts, Hale said, according to a Federal Computer Week report.

Within the service contract area, Hale said it is difficult for Pentagon officials to figure out what it will not use if the sequester takes effect.

Between $45 billion and $46 billion is slated to be cut for the remainder of the fiscal year if the sequester kicks in, FCW reports.
