The massive federal budget request will be unveiled Monday, and some agencies may see some shrinkage in their IT budgets this coming year.

Anne Reed, the chairman of the board of ASI Government, joined In Depth with Francis Rose to discuss the 2013 budget request and its impact on technology and financial management.

Reed addressed whether much stock should be put in the official budget since Congress has a spotty track record of even considering, let alone passing, budgets much before the end of the fiscal year.

She also shared advice for agency managers, who may find themselves in the middle of a multi-year project that has its funding cut as well as potential areas for contractors.
