Federal Government Operating Status in the Washington, DC, Area

Wednesday, October 27, 2004

"Federal agencies in the Washington, DC, area are OPEN; employees are expected to report for work on time."

The information above will be updated immediately upon a determination that operating status is anything other than OPEN. For information on Operating Status by telephone call (202) 606-1900. Hearing impaired users may utilize the Federal Relay Service* by simply dialing 1-800-877-8339 to reach a CA. The CA will dial the requested number and relay the conversation between a standard (voice) telephone user and text telephone (TTY) user. Alternatively, users may point their browser to http://www.frso.us. This service is similar to the Federal Relay Service but this service does not require a TTY.

These procedures apply to employees (including employees telecommuting from an alternative worksite) in all executive agencies located inside the Washington Capital Beltway. These procedures do not apply to employees of the U.S. Postal Service, the government of the District of Columbia, or private sector entities, including contractors. Facilities outside the Beltway may prefer to develop their own plans, since they are subject to different weather and traffic conditions than those inside the Beltway. In unusual situations, however, the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) may issue guidelines affecting facilities outside the Beltway, as well. See the Emergency Closure or Dismissal Procedures for further information on the coverage of these advisories.
