The following links provide information about FWS’ telework policy, guidance, forms, IT security, and other related information. Please note that IT Security plays a critical role in protecting Teleworker equipment and data. Teleworkers are required to use a government-furnished computer/laptop that meets FWS technical standards and comply with security updates, software upgrades, and any other security requirements. Employees should be aware that there is some variance on telework guidance between Regional Offices so be sure to visit the appropriate Regional intranet site for Region-specific guidance.
