The information in this desk reference supplements DOE N 314.1, DOE-Flex: DOE’s Telework Program, and the Office of Personnel Management’s (OPM’s) Guide to Telework in the Federal Government. The format of this desk reference follows the structure of the OPM guide, with the following exceptions:
- It describes one additional type of telework arrangement that applies in DOE
- It contains a frequently asked question section as additional guidance
- It contains sample forms that may be used or modified by a Departmental element as needed
This desk reference replaces the Handbook on DOE-Flex, DOE’s Flexiplace Program dated March 2000. The information in this desk reference should be further supplemented by a Departmental element to address local procedures.
Note: DOE’s Telework Program only applies to DOE Federal Government employees; it does not apply to DOE contractor employees. For information regarding contractors and telework, contact the applicable Contracting Officer Representative to determine if it is addressed in the respective contract.
