The Pentagon is figuring out how to deal with sequestration in 2014.

Last week, the Department of Defense said it was hopeful it would not have to furlough civilian employees next year but said it may be necessary.

Military pay is exempt from sequestration, leaving civilian workers to bear the brunt of cuts.

If sequestration isn't stopped, the D.O.D. faces $52 billion in cuts. That's on top of potential layoffs of 6,300 workers.

Other areas that would be hard hit include acquisition, technology and logistics.

Fiscal year 2014 starts on October 1.
