Federal Manager's Daily Report

The Office of Personnel Management has conducted a second

session for agency emergency personnel designations in

which 120 specialists from 50 federal agencies participated

in personnel assignment training, and studied communication

transportation issues related to continuity of operations


It said such plans are to ensure that the government can

function in the face of a natural or manmade emergency,

and that the session highlighted telework as an emergency

solution and agencies were asked to determine how their

work could get done through alternative work locations.

OPM has not yet specified the next forum date. The Federal

Manager’s/Decision Maker’s Emergency Preparedness Guide is
