This is the November 18, 2020 hearing "Modernizing Federal Telework: Moving Forward Using the Lessons Learned During the COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] Pandemic" held before the Senate Subcommittee on Regulatory Affairs and Federal Management of the Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs. From the opening statement of James Lankford: "This hearing is really focused on what we can gain, what has already been learned, what gaps are still there, and what we can do to better improve the process. It has been a decade since the last significant piece of Federal telework legislation, the Telework Enhancement Act of 2010. It set the baseline standard for Federal agencies to follow for telework. Over the last 10 years, we have seen great advances in technology, workforce expectations, and an increase in cybersecurity threats. So many changes in the world, it makes sense to take a close look at the current telework policies and strategies in the Federal workforce. The current pandemic has acted as a magnifying glass for telework policy improvement." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Michelle Rosenberg, Keith Washington, Sydney T. Rose, and Jim Borland.
