5.1.1 For employees covered by a telework agreement for routine or situational telework, the permanent duty station (PDS) is the location of the regular worksite of the employee's position (i.e., the place where the employee would normally work absent a telework agreement). PDS for remote work arrangements is defined in Section 6.1.1 of this NPR.
5.2.1 An authorized management official may approve an exception to the twice-in-a-pay-period requirement to address certain situations in accordance with 5 CFR § 531.605. For example, when an employee is recovering from an injury or medical condition or the employee is affected by an emergency situation, which temporarily prevents the employee from commuting to his or her regular worksite.
5.2.2 Management officials may only authorize a temporary exception when the employee retains a residence in the commuting area of the regular worksite and the employee is expected to return to the worksite in the near future (i.e., within one year) or when otherwise authorized under law or regulation (e.g., during an investigation.)
5.2.3 For employees who have received approval by an authorized management official for a temporary exception to the twice-in-a-pay-period reporting requirement to the regular worksite, the PDS is the location of the regular worksite of the employee's position (i.e., the place where the employee would normally work absent a telework agreement).
5.3.1 To the extent permitted by Federal laws, regulations, and Agency policies and procedures, IT and/or communication equipment, software, etc., will be provided by the Agency to a teleworker or remote worker. The equipment should be determined necessary for the performance of the employee's assigned duties, reasonably available, cost effective, and subject to the availability of funding.
5.3.2 While working at an alternative worksite, teleworkers/remote workers shall comply with Government-wide regulations and Agency policies and procedures for the safeguarding of information technology resources and information, including the appropriate use of removable media and cloud computing.
5.3.3 The Agency assumes no responsibility for any operating costs, including home maintenance, insurance, personal equipment, utilities, internet and phone services associated with an employee's use of a personal residence as an alternative worksite.
