Calling all feds: who’s got tales of use-it-or-lose-it spending?

August 22, 2013

Calling all tales of last-minute shopping! (And we’re not talking about that desperate trip to the mall on Christmas Eve.)

Our colleague, reporter Dave Fahrenthold, is writing about “use it or lose it,” and the flurry of federal spending that happens just before the fiscal year ends.

He’s looking for federal workers, or ex-feds, who have stories about the things they’ve bought for their agencies (or seen others buy) during this last-minute rush. Or—even better—things they’re about to buy during this year’s rush.

Do you have a story? Please e-mail him at, and include your contact information.
