Get the Intel on the State of the 2017 Budget Directly from the OMB
Featuring Erik Brine from the Office of Management & Budget (OMB); Defense Science and Technology Programs
The House and the Senate recently passed an appropriation bill that will fund the government for the rest of the fiscal year (through September 30, 2017). To hear more how the appropriations bill may impact your business please join Access National Bank and its Partners for a breakfast and networking session where Erik G. Brine in the National Security Division of the Office of Management and Budget will discuss the current budget and what to anticipate after September 30th.
Uncertainty with the Federal Budget continues to be a cause for concern among Federal Contractors. With the recent appropriations bill passage keeping the Government funded through September 30th more questions than answers arise as Federal Contractors continue to seek guidance as to where to focus their efforts. It’s important to identify areas where there’ll be increased funding so Federal Contractors can determine where to put forth their continuous business development efforts.
Given the recent appropriations bill only keeps the Government open through September 30, what is expected to happen in the next fiscal year?
