BAH is not having any firm-wide layoffs. But standard process is that if you don’t find billable work you are issued a lack of work letter in which you have to find a project by X date or you will be let go. It really depends on your admin team and level as to how long you will be given before being issued an LoW.

How many months needs to pass before you get this letter. My friend haven't got this yet but were reminded regularly that they need to find project

Probably not. Federal has been very stable. Over at ACN Federal we are still actively hiring and for the most part there has been minimal disruption to the pipeline

Unfortunately we’re not immune from layoffs due to our commercial “tether” ... great from bringing leading practices to the public sector, not so great in a pandemic
