This chapter provides the policy directives and required procedures that govern USAID’s Telework Program. The Agency implements the program in accordance with the Telework Enhancement Act of 2010, P.L. 111-292 (the Act) and subsequent guidance from the Office of Personnel Management (OPM). The Act defines the term “telework” as a “work flexibility arrangement under which an employee performs the duties and responsibilities of such employee’s position and other authorized activities, from an approved worksite other than the location from which the employee would otherwise work.”
