Status of Operations

Due to a lapse in appropriations, many parts of the federal government have to shut down – including many offices of the Broadcasting Board of Governors.

Employees can call 202-382-8222 for information on the status of agency operations. Employees are expected to report to work to perform shutdown operations if Oct. 1 is a scheduled workday.  Contractors will be expected to work unless otherwise notified by their contracting officer.  More information is available in the BBG’s plan for operations in the event of lapse of appropriations.

While programming of the U.S. international media networks will continue for overseas audiences, updates to this website will be limited to essential notices.
