Federal road warriors have offices on-the-go
That Starbucks around the corner can mean big savings for federal
agencies seeking to provide virtual workplaces for their employees, especially
those who travel long distances between a job site and the office.
Labor Department, NASA, and the Defense Contract Management Agency (DCMA) are spending on mobile gear to
allow workers to move to telework – with savings potentially in the
millions, reports the Federal Times.
For example, DCMA plans to save $5 million by 2014 by
ditching all but 1,000 of its 13,000 desktop computers, the article said.
