Sequestration 2.0 would mean furloughs for DoD's entire civilian workforce

New version of sequestration would reduce overall tab to DoD but compress across-the-board cuts into just seven months. A leading-think tank's "back of the envelope" calculations show the military would have to furlough almost every civilian.

Sequestration effects becoming clear for DoD

DoD's operations and maintenance accounts will likely be hit first if sequestration goes into effect. Unlike its procurement and research and development activities, which can continue to function on funds obligated in prior years, O&M dollars generally get spent right away. In preparation for sequestration, the Pentagon has already let go of tens of thousands of temporary hires and is drawing up a contingency plan for one-day-a-week furloughs. Deputy Secretary Ashton Carter says the unpaid furloughs would begin in April and continue through the remainder of the fiscal year if sequestration is not avoided.

Group surveying military pay, benefits ahead of proposed cuts

The Pentagon has unveiled details of a 10-year strategy for defense cuts including reductions in military pay and benefits. But before any large-scale changes are made, service members should be given a chance to voice their opinions of their compensation packages, the Center for Strategic and Budgetary, a prominent defense think tanks argues. "The Pentagon is already starting to move to make changes in the compensation system," said CSBA senior fellow Todd Harrison. "And basically our point here is before we start tinkering with things, before we start making changes we need to understand first how service members actually view different parts of their compensation package."
