more-on-teleworking-and-disaster-preparedness

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
