I am providing, for your information, the latest Department of Defense DD1414 report, Base for Reprogramming Actions for Fiscal Year 2013. It is expected that DoD will use this information to execute anticipated sequester cuts. The report, required by the current year’s defense appropriations measure, lists the fiscal year 2013 amounts that Congress appropriated for the Pentagon’s 2,500 programs, projects and budget activities, and shows how much each will be reduced by the automatic spending reductions that took effect March 1. While not in the most user friendly format, we wanted to provide details that many companies have been looking for. As we receive more specific and definitive information, we will pass that along. Please click on the following link for the DD1414 Report:
