Legislation Would Require Data Analysis of Federal Remote Work

The bill is intended to reveal the statistical pros and cons of teleworking.

Senators Gary Peters of Michigan and Joni Ernst of Iowa have proposed legislation that would require agencies to collect data on the efficacy of their remote work policies. The Telework Transparency Act would compile data to show how federal employee performance and decision-making are impacted by their work locations, indicating the pros and cons of working at home versus working from office spaces. 

“Federal agencies must track and consider the impact of telework on their ability to deliver services, recruit and retain talent, and ensure office operations are cost-efficient,” Senator Peters stated. “My bipartisan bill will require agencies to gather accurate data on telework policies to provide more transparency and help ensure federal agencies are effectively carrying out their missions for the American people.” 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Senators Peters and Ernst as they endeavor to ensure federal telework policies are delivering adequate productivity.
  • For members of Congress as they consider voting on the Telework Transparency Act.
