Federal Contractors in Tennessee: Preparing for March 1 Sequestration Budget Cuts. Baker Donelson government contracts attorneys will discuss today the effects of sequestration on federal contractors at this complimentary breakfast briefing. On March 1, 2013, the federal budget is scheduled to be reduced automatically by $1.2 trillion. Congress created this deficit reduction device as part of the so-called “sequestration” plan under the Budget Control Act of 2011. Even if congressional action is taken before March 1, the spending limits necessary to avoid sequestration will have a dramatic impact on federal contracting programs.
