$ 102–74.585 What Federal facility
telework policy must Executive
agencies follow? Executive agencies must follow these telework policies:
(a) In accordance with Section 359 of Public Law 106–346, each Executive agency must establish a policy under which eligible employees of the agency may participate in telecommuting to the maximum extent possible without diminished employee performance. Public 106–346 became effective on October 23, 2000, and required the Director of the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) to ensure the application and implementation of Section 359 to 25 percent of the Federal workforce by April 2001, and to an additional 25 percent of such workforce each year thereafter. Thus, the law provides that its requirements must be applied to 100 percent of the Federal workforce by April 2004.
(b) In accordance with 40 U.S.C. 587, when considering whether to acquire any space, quarters, buildings, or other facilities for use by employees of any Executive agency, the head of that agency shall consider whether the need for the facilities can be met using alternative workplace arrangements.
(1) Review telework barriers, act to remove them, and increase actual participation;
(2) Establish eligibility criteria; and
(3) Subject to any applicable agency policies or bargaining obligations, allow employees who meet the criteria and want to participate the opportunity if they are satisfactory performers.
(b) 40 U.S.C. 587 requires agencies considering the acquisition of facilities for use by Federal employees to consider whether the facility need can be met using alternative workplace arrangements, such as telecommuting, hoteling, virtual offices, and other distributive work arrangements. If the agency needs assistance in this investigation and/or subsequent application of alternative workplace arrangements, GSA will provide guidance, assistance, and oversight, as needed, regarding establishment and operation of alternative workplace arrangements.
(c) Agencies evaluating alternative workplace arrangements should also make these evaluations in coordination with Integrated Workplace policies and strategies. See § 102–79.110. 8102–74.595 How can agencies obtain
guidance, assistance, and oversight regarding alternative workplace ar
rangements from GSA? Agencies may request assistance from the GSA/PBS regional office responsible for providing space in the geographic area under consideration.
8 102–74.600 Should Federal agencies
utilize telework centers? Yes. In accordance with Public Law 107-217 (August 21, 2002), each of the following departments and agencies, in each fiscal year, must make at least $50,000 available from amounts provided for salaries and expenses for carrying out a flexiplace work telecommuting program (i.e., to pay telework center program user fees):
(a) Department of Agriculture.
(f) Department of Health and Human Services.
(g) Department of Housing and Urban Development.
$ 102–74.590 What steps must agencies
take to implement these laws and policies? (a) As interpreted by OPM Memorandum to agencies (February 9, 2001), Public Law 106–346 instructs Federal agencies to
