SBA Plan for Operating in the Event of a Lapse in Appropriations

This Small Business Administration Plan for Operating in the Event of a Lapse in Appropriations provides guidance and procedures for the Agency when either an annual appropriations act or continuing resolution has not been enacted for the Agency in a fiscal year.

The procedures in the Operating Plan allow for:

  2. initiating orderly shutdown of those activities not considered exempt or excepted.
