It has started in earnest. Two weeks notice of really short deadlines that depend on a multitude of people to have a small chance of meeting.
Why is it that we basically close down government every September (now creeping into August) to deal with book balancing and bureaucracy? Why can’t we do this stuff year round and not have to STOP?
Accounting systems are locked down and people are restricted from processing any transactions. Travel can’t proceed without finance. Govt customers are expected to bide their time while it is all sorted out.
Who among you have good stories of end of FY transitions that don’t stop everything in it’s tracks?
By the way, several record series have FY related cutoffs. So, maybe while some of your folks are sitting around waiting for the “systems” to restart, they can have a look at their records and get them bundled up for appropriate action. (With DoD 5015.02-STD compliant records management solutions, you don’t have to stop filing either…they must be able to process disposition and handle incoming records as well.)
