Lessons from DISA in meeting new telework requirements

Federal agencies are under pressure to implement the 2010 Telework Enhancement Act, which requires them by June to establish policies governing work outside the office, identify eligible employees and inform them of the option. The Defense Information Systems Agency already has an established telework program and nearly 50 percent of its employees have been approved to work remotely. To learn how DISA is meeting the challenge, review the Telework Best Practices case study on Nextgov's sister website GovExec.com. It is the first in series of Best Practices case studies on improving performance across government.
