PBGC OIG welcomes stakeholders to contribute information for consideration when we conduct program audits, reviews and inspections. Performance (program) audits, reviews and inspections provide findings or conclusions based on an evaluation of sufficient, appropriate evidence against criteria. Our works provide objective analysis to assist management, policy makers and other interested parties to improve program performance and operations, reduce costs, facilitate decision making by parties with responsibility to oversee or initiate corrective action, and contribute to public accountability.

The PBGC OIG is currently conducting an inspection of PBGC’s Telework Program to assess whether controls over the telework program are adequate, effective and implemented in accordance with Federal laws, regulations, guidance and PBGC policies and procedures.

Telework in the Federal Government

The Department of Transportation and related Agencies Appropriation Act of 2001, required all executive agencies to establish policies to enable telework “to the maximum extent possible without diminished employee performance.” The Telework Enhancement Act of 2010 expanded telework opportunities. Telework is a “work flexibility arrangement under which an employee performs the duties and responsibilities of such employee’s position…. from an approved worksite other than the location from which the employee would otherwise work.”

Telework saves money by helping government reduce real estate and energy costs and promote management efficiencies; makes us more resilient in severe weather and other emergencies; improves the quality of employee work-life; and increases employment opportunities for persons with disabilities.
