GSA hopes other agencies will follow suit

In addition to its responsibility for meeting internal telework goals, the General Services Administration, with the Office of Personnel Management, is responsible for leading federal telework efforts.

In that role, GSA runs 14 telework centers in the Washington metropolitan area where approved federal employees can use government-issued computers. Officials are discussing the possibility of running a line into a GSA center that would enable employees to access the Defense Department’s secure Secret Internet Protocol Router Network.

“I’d love to see [the centers] filled to overflowing — I’d love to see us have more than 14 centers,” said Lurita Doan, GSA’s administrator.
