OPM expects Tuesday decision by end of Monday

By Ed O'Keefe

The Office of Personnel Management hopes to make a decision about the federal government’s Tuesday operating status in the Washington region by the end of the day, OPM Director John Berry said in an e-mail Monday afternoon.

Berry did not immediately specify if that meant by the traditional close of business or later this evening, when asked in a follow up message.

Berry makes the final decision on the operating status for Washington-area federal offices and has vowed to make such decisions well before workers begin their morning commutes. OPM announced Monday's operating status on Sunday afternoon.

Regardless of Tuesday's operating status, this is already scheduled to be a shorter workweek for federal employees, because of Friday's Christmas holiday and an early dismissal scheduled for Thursday.
