Happy-Nearly-Here-Government New Year

Well I haven’t had much time to talk recently. This is because it’s the nearing the end of the fiscal year for government, as you govies and contractors know. For those not familiar, government celebrates its New Year’s Day at the end of September when fiscal money expires (i.e. Congress says you can’t use certain types of money anymore). That means we contracting folks work against the clock every September. If we can get a contract signed and money out to a contract by midnight on September 30, we are happy. If we can’t do it, the money becomes useless and you have to use funds from your new fiscal year. (And nobody wants to do this because people want to use that money for something else). Yes, your federal government works in strange ways with strange rules about money, but it’s the way Congress decided it’s supposed to be done, so we do it that way.

Anyways, that’s the long answer with some crazy government rules half-way explained along the way. Enjoy your day.
