Dwindling Budgets

What are government surveyors doing in the area of dwindling budgets and cuts to department staff? In my organization we have done more with less as I know everyone is now doing. Our field crews have been cut down from four as of six years ago to now just two crews. As this has occurred we have reduced the number of projects that have gone out to the private sector through our continuing services contracts as more of those projects are being done in house. An issue I am plagued with is how to replace severely outdated equipment with a budget that has been cut by 20-30% in the last two years while trying to keep current with new technologies, not easy to do.
