12 telework centers shuttered
GSA cuts funding to telework centers
The General Services Administration is cutting off funding for a dozen telework centers in the Washington, D.C.-metro region, reports Federal News Radio.
Although the recently passed Telework Enhancement Act provides telework opportunities for federal employees, the legislation did not provide funding for telework centers, which cost about $3 million per year to operate.
The 12 centers to be shuttered in Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia did not have adequate sources of funding or substantial income to keep operating, the article states.
