The Defense Information Systems Agency has its telework-approved employees take laptop computers home every day, to be prepared in case of any situation that might make driving to an office dangerous or impossible, according to Paul Berry, chief of the quality of work life office at DISA.

“We practice our telework quite frequently through quarterly exercises, though we have not had to use our exercises this particular quarter,” Berry said, as quoted in NextGov. “Because of all the snow we’ve had in D.C., we’ve been teleworking a lot.”

DISA began laying the groundwork during the base Realignment and Closure of 2008, replacing desktop computers with laptops equipped with virtual private networks. All employees are capable of teleworking, even though not all do, Berry said.
