TELEWORK PREPAREDNESS

2010 Rolling Telework Drills

Message from Mr. Chris Jedrey, Executive Director of HQ Operations

As we work together to increase our readiness posture, telework is a critical tool for ensuring the Continuity of Operations (COOP) at NASA HQ.  In order to simplify the process of utilizing telework, we have developed this Web page to provide information related to the 2010 rolling telework drills.  This page serves as a one-stop location for information such as scheduled telework drill dates, telework procedures and necessary equipment, and an electronic post-telework drill survey.  I encourage you to make good use of this page as you prepare for your Directorate/Office’s telework drill.

Thank you for your cooperation and support.

Chris Jedrey
Executive Director, HQ Operations

Emergency Telework

NASA HQ supports the emergency teleworking activity, a unique contingency response that may be activated under a variety of scenarios with or without the exercise of portions of the HQ and Agency Emergency Operations Center (EOC) Contingency Plan. Potential scenarios include:

  • Government ordered response to a flu pandemic requiring work at a COOP site or from home for an extended period.
  • Terrorist or criminal actions prohibiting access to the HQ building for an extended period of time such as Anthrax exposure.

Some of these emergency events would not cause an activation of the EOC or other contingency considerations. However, each scenario creates a situation where a large population of HQ employees and supporting contractors may be unable to accomplish their day-to-day business functions from HQ and would need to work at another location.

 

SCHEDULE
In order to organize the 2010 Rolling Telework Drills, each Directorate/Office has been assigned a week during the next year to telework. It is preferred that each Directorate/Office have their entire office telework the same day during the assigned week. However, if that is not possible, more than one day may be scheduled in order to allow all personnel the opportunity to participate in this important activity.
