Shutdown may put national security supply chain at risk

The uncertainty surrounding the military’s training programs in light of the government shutdown could delay contractor payments in ways that affect the national security supply chain.

Defense One reported on a Congressional Research Service report that reviewed the Pay Our Military Act that Congress passed last week and cautioned that a lapse of appropriations could disrupt operations to a degree.

Congressional Research Service analysts said that the impact of the shutdown on contractor employees is still unclear, noting that there could be contract delays that create confusion and disruption to material and services, Defense One reported.
