Federal workers: Is your agency planning for massive, automatic spending cuts?

Congressional negotiators may reach a deal before their Christmas recess to avoid a “fiscal cliff” of steep tax increases and spending cuts in January. But they very well may not, which leaves the real possibility that on Jan. 2, $600 billion in tax hikes and civilian and defense spending cuts would begin to take effect.

Is your agency planning for across-the-board cuts of more than 8 percent to its operating budget? We want to hear from you — what you’re thinking, what your managers are saying or not saying, and what they’re doing, or not doing, to plan for so-called sequestration across the federal government.
