Although nearly a year has passed since President Obama signed a federal law mandating that agency officials put policies and infrastructure in place to support teleworking, many federal employees whose managers trust them to telework still aren’t doing so, according to a new survey.

The Obama administration passed the Telework Enhancement Act of 2010 in December, and federal agencies were to create telework policies and designate a managing officer with direct access to a top agency official to oversee telework programs.

Although some progress has been made on this front, many believe that there still aren’t solid practices in place to support federal teleworking, according to the “Telework 2011: Federal Government and Industry Outlook on Telework” survey by FedScoop.
