Spending freeze for balance of FY 2011 now in place

Mayor Vince Gray has signed an order (PDF) freezing spending on Non-personal Services (NPS) to avoid overspending the FY 2011 budget.

Under the order, agencies are now required to obtain permission from the Executive Office of the Mayor to spend Local funds for supplies, contracts and other items.   Personal Services (PS) are not affected.   Independent agencies, such as the City Council and DC Public Library, are not included in the order.

The press release is here (PDF).
