As reported by the New York Times, F.B.I. Plans to Close Offices for 10 Days to Cut Costs:

Quote
After months of agonizing about how to deal with the effects of government spending cuts, senior F.B.I. officials in Washington have decided how they will reduce the bureauís spending: they will shut down its headquarters and offices across the country for roughly 10 weekdays over the next year.

The people briefed on the F.B.I.'s plans spoke on the condition of anonymity because they did not want to be identified discussing plans that had not yet been publicly announced.
Since taking his post a week ago, the new F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, has been vocal about how the spending cuts known as sequestration will affect the bureau. At a news conference in Richmond, Va., on Monday, Mr. Comey said he was surprised by how substantial the cuts would be on operations.
"Iím not sure the effects of sequestration on this great institution that is charged with protecting the American people ó that those effects are known well enough yet, and it is something I intend to talk about," he said.
He added, "I canít imagine that if we have charged people with protecting their fellow citizens that it makes sense to send them home and tell them you canít work for two weeks without pay."

No word on the impact on the BAU, or any subteam thereof. Nor on any specialized treatment facilities in Virginia.

I suspect/desperately hope that the Idlewood staff would come in regardless.. But I do hope they still pay for the rather high power usage...

Between the sequester and the October US Government shutdown, there's all sort of fiscal plotbunnies coming out of the Capitol Hill woodwork.
