Being in Local Gov, we have been dealing with this for 4-5 years. With a hiring freeze and furloughs its difficult. I feel for you Federal folks. This is a big challenge. The one tip I can offer, is to prioritize what you need to do…the rest will just take a little longer to do…Being in IT, we have had to accomplish doing more with less for years. Use Technology and work smarter….you can adapt and overcome!
