Katie Maddocks, Federal Managers Association

Congressional leaders insist they can get an omnibus spending bill done to fund your agency for the rest of the fiscal year before the current continuing resolution runs out Dec. 11. But a cromnibus -- a combination omnibus and CR -- may be a lot more likely. That's the bad news. The good news is a bill like that might mean minimal impact on your pay and benefits. Katie Maddocks is governmental affairs representative for the Federal Managers Association. On In Depth with Francis Rose, she said a cromnibus, or even a plain old CR, isn't the worst that could happen.

It's a good idea to be prepared. The Government Accountability Office reviewed how agencies handled last year's lapse in appropriations. Yvonne Jones, the agency's director of Strategic Issues, explained the findings on the Federal Drive with Tom Temin.

Don Kettl, School of Public Policy, University of Maryland

Everyone with a stake in the federal budget is looking toward Dec. 11. That's when the continuing resolution runs out, and Congress will have to decide what to do next. Beyond that, federal agencies are looking at two long years of a Republican Congress and Democratic White House. Will it be the immoveable rock facing the irresistible force? Or can good things still happen? Don Kettl, professor at the University of Maryland School of Public Policy and long-time watcher of all things federal, offered some insight on the Federal Drive with Tom Temin.

DoD's 'vertical integration,' effort to further pare administrative costs

Two early pilot programs have shown the Pentagon that it can reduce overhead spending by carefully studying its excess costs rather than cutting each office's budget by an arbitrary figure. Once expanded across DoD's support agencies, the savings could run into the billions.
