The Office of Management and Budget has shortened its scheduled furloughs by two days, GovExec reported Monday.

Eric Katz writes the forced leave due to fiscal 2013 budget cuts were originally for 10 days per employee.

OMB staff members have already taken seven days of temporary layoffs, and now have one more left slated throughout September.

“OMB was able to eliminate two of the 10 originally planned furlough days through greater than expected attrition, a hiring freeze and other cost reduction measures,” said Ari Isaacman Astle, an OMB spokeswoman.
