Washington-Area Federal Offices Open

By Ed O'Keefe

Despite the weather outside, Washington, D.C.-area federal offices will be open today, according to the Office of Personnel Management. As The Eye has previously reported, the (acting) OPM director consults with local, state and federal agencies such as the National Weather Service before determining how conditions could impact commutes and transportation options.

In almost all cases however, regardless of the weather, emergency federal employees have to report for work on time. Federal employees can learn of their work status by calling (202) 606-1900, or by visiting and clicking on the upper right hand "Operating Status" link, or by subscribing for an e-mail alert at that same link.

What a shame. Someone needs to tell OPM to revise the rules about weather closings. For those of us in the regions, we would prefer that the DC folks get the entire year off. Things run so much better when DC employees are not at work.
