Happy Tuesday! The federal government will slowly ramp back up to full operating status today, but not before enduring another two hour delay and unscheduled leave for those who can’t make it into work.
“After three more days of clean up, things should hopefully go better, but repeating Friday[‘s operating status] will also give us a
good baseline to see if the system is ready to return to 100 percent,
which we will hopefully be able to do Wednesday,” Office of Personnel
Director John Berry said in an e-mail to The Federal Eye on Monday night. He was harshly criticized on Friday for his decision to issue a two hour delay and unscheduled leave.
And amid an already shorter week thanks to Monday’s federal holiday, we’re wondering: Do you agree with today’s decision? Will you work
longer hours this week to make up for lost time? Or did you
successfully complete tasks last week while working from home? (Or did
you have to work through the storm regardless?)
