Telework provides employees with the opportunity to perform their duties at alternative worksites during an agreed-upon portion of their work week. Alternative worksites may include an employee's home, a telecommuting center (commonly called a telecenter) or another USGS facility, or a "virtual office."

For more information about the Telework Program, please refer to the Department of Interior Telework Handbook (2012).
