The General Services Administration, which jointly administers

the government’s telework initiative with the Office of

Personnel Management, has established a network of interagency

telework centers in communities surrounding the Washington,

D.C. Metropolitan area, home of some 300,000 federal workers,

and outlined the necessary steps employees must take to

telecommute through them.

Employees may visit or telephone telework centers and discuss

availability and technology requirements with the center

operator (direct link to all of the centers).

They also can discuss and complete the Telework Reimbursement

Sheet (online at under Publications) with their

agency’s telework coordinator. And, they can complete any

training and evaluation activities or telework agreements

required by the agency, and notify the telecenter director of

their intended telework start date.
