Report 2003-001-AMR - Increased Use Of Telework To Reduce Infrastructure Costs At Headquarters

Fiscal Year
Executive Summary

This report is the result of an Office of Inspector General (OIG) review of potential costs and benefits of frequent telework at EEOC Headquarters, located at 1801 L Street, Northwest, Washington, D.C. These savings, and the detailed analysis presented in this study, relate only to the Headquarters Building which includes the Washington Field Office, which moved to the Headquarters Building in 2004. Telework, also referred to in the federal government as Flexiplace, is a work arrangement in which employees, occasionally or frequently, perform their job duties away from their central workplace. Many private and public organizations cite telework as a method to achieve many benefits, including real estate savings, improved productivity, and increased employee satisfaction.
