REE Work-Life Programs

REE Telework Program

Please note: This page is currently under review for modification.

The REE Telework Program allows employees who meet certain eligibility criteria to work from an alternative work site other than their official duty station. The work site can be the employee’s home, a GSA-sponsored telecenter, or any satellite location determined by the employee and/or their supervisor.

For additional information about the telework program, including policy and procedures, please contact your Agency’s designated telework record keeper listed below. You may also contact Liz Parker, REE Work/Life Program Manager on 301-504-1387 when the record keeper is unavailable.
