Sessions to Hold Second Hearing on Biden Administration’s Telework Policies

WASHINGTON—Subcommittee on Government Operations and the Federal Workforce Chairman Pete Sessions (R-Texas) announced a hearing titled “Oversight of Federal Agencies’ Post-Pandemic Telework Policies: Part II” to continue the subcommittee’s review of telework policies at federal agencies, including how agencies intend to comply with the Biden Administration and OMB’s recent directives to increase in-person work.

“Each government agency provides a unique service to the American people. That’s why we must hear from more federal agencies as we continue our work examining the impact of expanded telework on agency performance and the needs of the American people. We will continue to ensure federal agencies are transparent in whether they are measuring the impact of telework on their ability to accomplish their missions,” said Subcommittee Chairman Sessions.
