    Many of the larger companies have been able to shield their big programs from sequestration. Either interested Congressmen have protected their program from cuts or they got their contract extensions awarded before January when there was still money in the budget. Other companies had to wait until sequestration was in full swing and had to fight with everyone else for what was left. My office has also been told to spend what they have by the end of July, because they expect funding to disappear, instead of the usual end of year rush to spend left over, or held back funds. No one has any confidence there will be much or any end of year funds and they have less confidence they will have time to award it with furloughs and no overtime.
