Budget pressures are increasing the demand for government agencies to operate during austere times. A continuing resolution (CR) provides funding for existing federal programs at current or reduced levels when formal appropriations bills have not been signed into law by the end of the Congressional fiscal year. We’ll discuss:
- What is a CR?
- General provisions that apply to all appropriations covered by the CR.
- Anomalies that apply to single accounts and typically deviate from some of the general provisions.
- Common CR questions received by the U.S. Office of Management and Budget.
