Bottom line, government contractors will not be affected in the case of a government shutdown. However, everyone is still curious to who will be affected. The answer is non-essential government employees. Some government contractors that work in government facilities that shutdown will be affected, otherwise the majority of contractors will continue their contracts with the federal government unaffected. This will cause nonessential federal employees to cease work and be told to go home. The government will stop giving out loans, and stop passport creation.

According to a CNN Report, the House of Representatives passed two spending bills that would amend Obamacare. The Senate is projected to reject the two amendments stating earlier that any amendment to Obamacare would be a deal breaker. This would cause Congress to slowly lay on the breaks due to a spending bill not being approved. Hence, the government shutdown. The part of this whole congressional mess is that Obamacare isn’t even directly tied to spending. It is being used as a bargaining chip by republicans in the House in an effort to remove the newly created health care law.

With the end of the fiscal year approaching, contracting officers have to spend their contracting dollars immediately. Otherwise, they will have a lower spending limit the following year. If they don’t use it, they literally lose it. That is why it is important small businesses register in System for Award Management (SAM) now more than ever in order to be eligible for government contracts and federal set-asides. The majority of business owners find SAM registration to be very difficult and find that the government will reject their registration if improperly filed.
