The issues with DAV from earlier in the week have been resolved. Examiners should request time adjustments for disruption to their work from their supervisors as soon as possible. POPA is still in discussions with management and expects that better guidance for supervisors and employees on available adjustments will be forthcoming.

POPA Annual Meeting
The Telework Enhancement Act Pilot Program (TEAPP) Oversight Committee requests that all USPTO employees, both those who do and do not currently telework or participate in TEAPP, take a few minutes to complete the TEAPP Evaluation Survey.
The TEAPP allows employees to work anywhere in the contiguous U.S. (greater than 50 miles from the USPTO campus, located in Alexandria, VA) without a routine reporting requirement back to campus. While enrolled in TEAPP, employees will change their duty station to an alternate worksite in the city in which they live.
