The Office of Personnel Management released an addendum to its existing telework guidance focused on employees with caregiving responsibilities.  

Recognizing the need for flexibility to maintain a healthy work-life balance and improve the morale of the federal workforce, OPM issued policy clarifications in December to assist employees with minor children and/or adult dependents in fulfilling both personal responsibilities and agency mission requirements.

​The year 2016 again saw large data breaches of both Federal and private companies, from the IRS to telcos and internet service providers. Couple that with hacks of emails during the 2016 Presidential Election, and the year ended with a lot of attention on data security. Cybersecurity, or the federal government’s lack of it, has become more prominent due to ongoing attacks targeting Federal entities.

President-elect Donald Trump is evaluating a radical overhaul of veterans health care options even before he finalizes his pick for the next secretary of veterans affairs.

In comments to reporters late Wednesday, a transition official said Trump is considering a “public-private option” that would allow some veterans to get all of their medical care from private-sector physicians, with the government paying the bill.

Throughout this Administration, we’ve introduced new and innovative ways to make it easier for Americans to engage with their government. There’s the FEMA app that lets users better access safety tips, weather alerts, and reminders of important actions to take to prepare before a disaster. For the first time ever, citizens can send a note to President Obama simply by messaging the White House on Facebook. And just recently, we launched the 1600 app to offer a new way for Americans to experience 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

Today, we’re excited to announce the launch of the first-ever mobile application for RegInfo – RegInfo Mobile.

Military families will have easier access to urgent care and primary care under Congress’ annual defense policy bill, and out-of-pocket costs won't change for most Tricare users who are already enrolled in the system.
 
Future service members and their families won't be as lucky. Plans call for for fees and co-pays to be collected from those entering service and/or enrolling in health plans after Jan. 1, 2018. One exception: Retirees and family members now enrolled in Tricare Standard will have to pay an annual enrollment fee of $150 for singles and $300 for families starting in 2020.

As part of its latest efforts to prevent cybercrime, the IRS said it will begin sending letters to currently registered e-Services users asking them to re-register within 30 days of the date of the letter or risk being shut out of the system. The letters were sent beginning Nov. 28 and will continue to be mailed through the end of December to e-Services users who can access the transcript delivery service and who have been active on their e-Services account within the past year. The IRS announced the re-registration program in September.

On November 22, just a few days before its December 1 implementation date, a Texas court issued a nationwide preliminary injunction stopping implementation of the Department of Labor’s (DOL) rule to more than double the current salary threshold for certain exemptions from overtime pay. Twenty-one states, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, and other business groups filed lawsuits, later consolidated into one, arguing that the DOL exceeded its statutory authority in raising the salary threshold and by providing for the automatic adjustment of the threshold every three years. The DOL rule raises the salary threshold from $23,660 to $47,476 annually, which more than doubles the minimum annual salary a worker can earn and qualify for an exemption from the overtime pay provisions of the Fair Labor Standards Act. The rule will also adjust the threshold every 3 years based on the 40th percentile of wages for full-time salaried workers in the lowest wage earning geographic area captured by the Census.

The Government Accountability Office has recommended that Congress require the Defense Department to include the systems engineering status of major acquisition programs in the DoD’s annual budget request.

Editor's Note: This story originally appeared on FCW.com

The National Telecommunications and Information Administration is working to finalize consensus best practices to close the gap between government and industry interests when it comes to disclosing technical vulnerabilities that could impact public safety.

NTIA, a component of the Department of Commerce, doesn't regulate industry. Instead it convenes groups of stakeholders with an eye to forge consensus on best practices. At a Nov. 7 meeting, three working groups presented their progress in three main areas: safety and disclosure, multi-vendor disclosure, as well as adoption and awareness.

​The presidential election is behind us and many across the country are in a state of shock. Hillary Clinton supporters are reeling from an unexpected loss, while Donald Trump supporters are perhaps equally surprised that he pulled it off.

Politics is not an area where Washington Technology traditionally plays, nor should it. But we do have a duty to explore the “what does it mean?” question.

While we would be headed into a transition period no matter who carried the day, a Clinton victory likely would have meant fewer changes. A Trump presidency, however, means that we’ll see deeper and further reaching changes.
