How to get started teleworking
Friday - 3/12/2010, 6:01pm EST
The GSA has some tips for getting started.
1) Get to know your agency Telework Coordinator. Be sure to ask about any agency-specific procedures.
3) Once you've made your selection, you'll need to call the one you picked and ask the director about availability of space and if there's any special information about that center you need to know.
4) Register through the Telework OnLine Billing System (TOLBS). "Also keep in mind," says GSA, "all supervisors and certifying officials must also sign up in TOLBS."
When you're all set, here's what GSA you can expect to find at a telework center when you start:
- Current computer technologies
- Secure server with back-up systems
- High speed internet connectivity
- E-mail and file transfer capabilities
- Standard office software
- Laser and color printers
- Digital phone systems with voicemail
- Fax, scanner, and copy equipment
- On-site technical support
- Lockable personal storage
- Conference rooms (most with video/web conferencing)
- 24-hour secured client access
- Accessible to persons with disabilities
