A government shutdown next week would interrupt certain services and force agencies to furlough many of the nation’s 800,000 federal employees.

The Office of Management and Budget has asked agencies to make contingency plans in the event that Congress and the White House fail to reach a deal to fund the government after Sept. 30.

Follow the link below to find out what some agencies have said about their plans this time around. The Post will update that chart as more details become available, so be sure to check back periodically.
