The Office of Management and Budget began posting shutdown contingency plans for numerous federal agencies late last week. The page notes that it will be updated as more become available.

Agencies listed range from larger agencies, such as the Departments of Agriculture and Health and Human Services to smaller agencies such as the American Battle Monuments Commission.

The individual plans range from very short to quite extensive and cover topics such as which employees at the agencies would and would not be required to work in the event of a shutdown furlough.
