Parrott said the October government shutdown was challenging for AMS, but Parrott said the AMS wanted to go through that period with the least disruption to its customers and employees. “I think we made it through very well and we were fortunate in that so many of our programs are user-funded and didn’t have to shut down,” he said.

Parrott said he isn’t focused on the possibility of future budget problems for the agency. “Ultimately what I want is to make sure our programs mirror what the industry needs and so if the industry changes and their needs change, I want to make sure our programs are responsive to that,” he said.
