GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN UPDATE: There are only a few hours left until funding runs out on the latest continuing resolution. There is currently a bipartisan bill in the Senate which would fund the government long term.

FMA is hopeful that the members of Congress will be able to strike a deal and avoid a shutdown in the waning hours.

FMA will keep its members updated as everything unfolds through our Facebook page here, our twitter handle @fedmanagers or our website

GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN IMMINENT: It is unfortunate to announce that we are a few hours away from the government running out of funding and it looks like there will not be enough progress made to prevent a government shutdown.

FMA will keep its members updated as everything unfolds through our Facebook page here, our twitter handle @fedmanagers or our website

We are asking members to take several actions: the first would be to check with your specific agency or department on their shutdown policy, Next, please review the government shutdown guidance from OPM which can be found at our website under 'Announcements,' and finally take action by sending our action letter to Congress urging them to prevent a shutdown at all costs!

With Congress passing a continuing resolution to fund the government through January 19, it is comforting to know there is no danger of a government shutdown over the holidays. To read more on the CR please go to

FMA wishes you happy holidays and a wonderful new year!

SHUTDOWN UPDATE: FMA is optimistic that a government shutdown will be temporarily averted. The government runs out of money this Friday, December 8 and Congress, as of now, plans on passing a short-term spending measure until December 22 or 23 to give them enough time to put the finishing touches on FY18 appropriations.

FMA will continue to update you as the situation develops. To read more, please go to

The House and Senate approved the final conference report for the 2018 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) this week, clearing it for President Trump's signature.

Regrettably, it does not include the House-passed amendment repealing the cuts DOD made to long-term TDY per diems. FMA has worked tirelessly on this issue since the cuts were implemented in 2014. The bill does keep the voluntary separation incentive pay for DOD employees at $40,000 ...through September 30, 2021.

It also boosts the military pay raise to 2.4 percent for 2018. FMA continues to call for pay parity between civilians and the military.
