D.C. Office of Chief Technology Officer goes ROWE
Monday - 10/18/2010, 2:06pm EDT
The department's 550 employees will become the first agency in the D.C. government system to be a ROWE, according to GovLoop.
The person behind the decision is 35-year-old CTO Brian Sivlak. According to the American Progress, Sivlak said there were three main reasons for starting ROWE: budget cuts, a citywide hiring freeze and the challenege of recruiting top-notch IT professionals to lower government pay.
Sivlak told American Progress, "In the long run I hope we can prove this should be the way an organization can function. Not just in OCTO, not just in D.C. government, not just in government, but anywhere. It's about time we start investing some trust in people, and giving them responsibility and holding them accountable."
ROWE is also continuing in federal workplaces next year as the Office of Management and Budget announced earlier this month its extension of a pilot ROWE program through 2011.
