more-on-teleworking-and-disaster-preparedness

(0 comments)

Echoing my last post, GovExec.com points out that federal plans for telework during disasters are sadly lacking.

The ability of federal agencies to continue critical operations during large-scale emergency situations would be significantly enhanced with widespread use of telework, but few have made the necessary preparations, officials told a congressional panel Thursday.

There are a number of reasons why this is sad:

  • The technology to enable teleworking is readily available and fairly inexpensive.
  • Teleworking would provide benefits beyond disaster preparedness ( see last post).
  • The inability of federal agencies to provide teleworking services makes me doubt their ability to provide other, potentially more critical services.
  • The likelihood of a disaster seems pretty high to me, so it would be good to be prepared.
  • Currently unrated
