As a contractor you're never guaranteed that your program funding will come through due to current budget climates. As a contractor, you may be doing an outstanding job and the work you're doing could unexpectedly end. This, however, is the life of a contractor. It is always in the back of you mind and duly noted that your position could come to a stop with immediate effect.
It feels like you're ice skating up hill. All your hard work barley makes a dent in the problems the organization faces.
