Informal Transaction Shot Clocks Suspended During Lapse in FundingA Government-wide lapse in funding occurred on October 1, 2013, and the Commission's informal 180-day time
clock for review of transactions will be suspended. The individual time clock for each pending transaction will be
stopped on the day of review that coincides with the last business day before the lapse in funding which is
September 30, 2013.
The informal time clocks will be restarted on the business day following the day of return to normal operations.
Thus, for example, if a lapse in funding ended on a Monday, the Commission would return to normal operations
on Tuesday morning, and the time clocks would be restarted on Wednesday.
Finally, although the Commission will not be open for normal operations during any government-wide shutdown,
it may be contacted in the case of an emergency affecting the safety of life or the protection of property at 202-
