The Government’s Partial Shutdown Puts Many People and Businesses at Risk?

All eyes are on the government as it continues into its fifth week of its partial shut down. And while much of the media attention has been focused on the workers who are still putting in their hours but are not getting paid, there are also man other side effects as well. The fact that TSA agents in some parts of the country are now being served free meals by airport restaurants is just one example of how the nation is working through these difficult times. When it comes to ordering the tactical equipment that will be needed in the future, there are also some concerns that delayed orders will result in a shortage of equipment in the future.

When was the last time that you had to meet your financial commitments without a reliable paycheck? When was the last time that you had to hold off on making a purchase while you waited for a commission check? If you have ever faced these dilemmas then you begin to understand the impact that the government shutdown will have on the ability to order tactical equipment the next time that it is needed.

Special Operational Equipment Provides the Protection that Many People Need
From the best fire and emergency services equipment that is available for local workers to the organizational clothing and individual equipment that is needed for other kinds of workers, it is important to make sure that these items are ordered well in advance of when they are needed. With the right lead time, in fact, you are able to get better prices with the most affordable shipping prices.

Defense contractors across the nation are looking at production times and calculating how they will be able to provide the needed materials to fill orders that will eventually be submitted. Did you know, for instance, that in the fiscal year 2017 government buyers spent nearly $1.2 billion through the GSA Security Schedule? When these purchases are delayed because of a government shut down there can be consequences that are felt throughout all parts of the nation’s economy.
