To assist the Lab in estimating the cost of the recent partial federal government shutdown, employees are asked to spend no more than two minutes to calculate approximately how many hours they spent between Oct. 1 and Oct. 17 responding to the lapse in federal appropriation and on related scenario planning. This includes meetings and phone conferences, responding to or creating data calls for the Lab and DOE, and any other time spent planning for or otherwise responding to the shutdown issue. Click here to fill out the one question survey. Those not logged into their gmail.lbl.gov account will be prompted to do so first. Staff already logged in will go directly to the survey. Employees who were not impacted do not need to respond. Survey data will be reported at aggregate levels, not on an individual employee basis.
