The Office of Personnel Management is extending its Results Only Work Environment, or ROWE, pilot through 2011.

About 400 employees have been in the demonstration program since this summer. OPM expected to run the test program for only six months, through December 31.

Justin Johnson, deputy chief of staff at OPM, told Federal News Radio's Jason Miller about OPM's decision to extend the program and how the ROWE pilot is going to date.

You can hear more of Jason's interview tomorrow on the Federal Drive with Tom Temin and Amy Morris.
