This time, OPM created an interagency council to help each individual agency create a plan best suited to its own circumstances. Some agencies are expanding telework, some are offering alternate work schedules, and some are exploring other options.
As the plan progresses, Federal News Radio is contacting agencies with offices located near affected Metro stations to find out what exactly their plans include, and will be updating this timeline to reflect their responses in order to provide feds with an easy to understand, comprehensive guide to the federal government’s response.
