Federal partial government shutdown
The offices of Federal Relations and Research and Sponsored Programs continue to follow the partial federal government shutdown and are committed to keeping UW–Madison faculty, staff and students updated regarding potential impacts to campus. Several agencies that support important work on campus, such as USDA, NSF, NASA, NOAA, and DHS are currently impacted by the shutdown.
The Office of Federal Relations has posted some general guidance and some answers to frequently asked questions on its website.
Research and Sponsored Programs’ website also provides very helpful guidance. Please send all agency stop work correspondence to the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs, firstname.lastname@example.org. RSP staff will review the notice and contact you with guidance before taking any additional action.
