A new bill would allow Inspectors General (IGs) to keep working even if the government shuts down again. Additionally, Rep. Jody Hice (R-GA) is asking IGs across government to evaluate how well remote work really worked.

  • Daniel Levinson, former Inspector General at the Department of Health and Human Services and the General Services Administration, and Jon Rymer, principal at Lynch Consultants and former Inspector General at the Department of Defense, said the shutdown legislation is important because audits, criminal investigations and protection of sensitive information depend on continuity of operations.
  • As for the proposed IG investigation into telework productivity, Rymer said it would be relatively simple for IGs to evaluate employee engagement through government cell phone records and use of email and other applications.
  • Levinson said the government should become more comfortable with new technology and take lessons learned from the private sector regarding remote work.
