Due to a lapse in appropriations, a partial government shutdown is in place. Not all agencies are affected. The Office of Research & Sponsored Programs (RSP) is closely monitoring the budget situation in Washington, D.C., and we are working diligently to determine the most appropriate response to the shutdown. Our commitment to help campus navigate sponsored programs administration is unchanged. We will continue to provide guidance as clearly and timely as possible. See below for further information and guidance.
The shutdown may impact application submission, award processing, no-cost extensions, and other tasks that require federal sponsor interaction for those agencies that are affected.
Should you receive any shutdown-related correspondence from the sponsor (e.g., stop work order), please immediately provide the information to your supervisor or Principal Investigator and to Research and Sponsored Programs.
Appropriations bills have been passed such that about 75% of FY2019 funding is in place. The table below shows on the left which agencies have received funding and, on the right, the agencies whose appropriations bills have not yet passed and are affected by a partial shutdown. Note that these are not complete lists.

RSP is providing guidance related to stop work orders, impacted UW employees, and specific project types. The specific guidance is listed below and will be updated as the situation in Washington develops.
