DoD applies telework, subsidies to ease BRAC moves Federal Times By STEPHEN LOSEY April 20, 2009Elizabeth Ahlersmeyer has some tough decisions to make over the next two years.
Her job as a program analyst for the Defense Information Systems Agency is moving from Arlington, Va., to a new building at Fort Meade, Md., in early 2011. She likes working for DISA, but the prospect of fighting Washington's notorious traffic while commuting more than 30 miles from her home in Alexandria, Va., to Maryland - which will probably take at least 50 minutes each way — doesn't thrill her. Neither does selling her house in the current housing market. Neither does searching for a new job, since she's happy with DISA's work life and employee development programs.
"I'm weighing quite a few factors," Ahlersmeyer said.Ahlersmeyer isn't alone. Roughly 36,000 civilian Defense Department employees are due to be relocated over the next three years as part of the base realignment and closure, or BRAC, process.
Defense Department agencies are taking some unique steps to hold on to as many of them as possible. They are building Web sites where employees can find benefits to help them move or other job opportunities elsewhere in Defense. Some want to expand the use of telework to accommodate employees who don't want to move closer to their new workplaces.
