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.

If the problems are not documented, then it becomes next to impossible to argue that anything needs to be done. (All links listed below are internal).
