No doubt most if not all, of you have heard about the drasitc personnel ceiling and budget limitations imposed by Congress. For FY-54 and 55 we are limited personnel-wise to the number we had on duty as of mid-night 30 June. This means that no additional commitments can be undertaken unless we are relieved of present duties. This means that if a project requires five additional people another project or projects must be reduced that num- ber. It is appropriate therefore, that each activity be reviewed to determine whether or not every slot presently filled is absolutely necessary. This, you should;-do with a very critical eye. If you find an activity that is not fully productive and absolutely essential, please let me know. There is no "fat" unless you can, by this critical review, bring it to light. 11. The Company is restricted budget-wise for FY-54 and FY-55 to the amount obligated in FY-53. This means that we will not be able to procure equipment, other than that necessary to maintain existing facilities. It also means that we will, have to curtail travel to some extent. We have been given a specific amount from which we must meet all of our commitments. There is no "kitty". If we watch our operations carefully and increase the efficiency of our management. I am sure that we can continue to carry out all the things that are absolutely necessary. I request your whole-hearted coopera- tion to carry out our commitments to our customers and still live within our means.
