OPM, GSA upgrade telework Web site

The Office of Personnel Management has revamped its telework Web site, giving it a new, bright-green look and adding features that make it easier to find information about federal telework.

One new feature, a search database about frequently asked questions, allows users to input telework-related questions. If answers are not found on the site, the questions can be routed to experts who will respond through e-mail messages. The FAQ page also offers telework guidance and direction to employees and managers, along with telework coordinators. Another new feature allows users to read and download recent telework guidance and legislation, reports and studies.

OPM updated the site in partnership with the General Services Administration, OPM's telework.gov partner.

OPM Director Linda Springer said the updated site will help give government employees and manages a better understanding of telework. “This site will certainly contribute to continued growth of telework in the federal government," she said.

Additional features include quick links to key practices and online telework training and access to telework-related policies such as emergency planning and security.


The site’s green color scheme is intended to reflect the environmentally friendly aspects of telework, OPM said.
