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 GSA.gov 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.
