Sequester

OMB issues furlough notices

man planning layoffs

Several of the 11 offices within the Executive Office of the President have sent furlough notices to employees, including to 480 employees of the Office of Management and Budget, according to White House spokesman Jay Carney.

Speaking at the White House press briefing on April 1, Carney added that the EOP "has managed our personnel costs in a variety of ways, including hiring slowdowns and delayed backfilling of open positions. And as the impact of the sequester progresses, furlough and pay cuts remain possibilities -- or additional furloughs, as well as pay cuts, remain possibilities for additional White House employees."

In response to subsequent questions, Carney declined to provide additional information.
