Frequently Asked Questions Telework

Can Federal contractors telework?

Since the Federal telework program and policies cover only Federal employees, Federal contractors are not governed by OPM and GSA telework guidance or by individual agency policies, and are not counted in the annual Status of Telework in the Federal Government report to Congress.

However, this does not prohibit – and should not prevent – contract employees from actually teleworking, as appropriate.

Telework arrangements for contractors should be negotiated with both the contractor’s own employer and with the appropriate Federal agency official, so policies and procedures are in close alignment and all concerned parties are in agreement.  Telework language may even be integrated into the contract itself.
