Lisa Rein writes ( about Commission ) : “The Office of Personnel Management, which oversees policy for the workforce of 2.1 million, has urged agency heads in recent days to ‘immediately review’ their telework policies, sign paperwork with employees laying out their duties, issue ­laptops and grant access to computer networks,” “The administration has not issued a widespread mandate, but some offices already have acted. The Securities and Exchange Commission late Monday became the first federal agency in Washington to clear 2,400 employees from its headquarters after discovering that an employee might be infected” External link

Lisa Rein reports : “After a big push toward telework in the Obama administration, [Trump’s] government is scaling it back at multiple agencies on the theory that a fanny in the seat prevents the kind of slacking off that can happen when no one’s watching. The about-face began at the Agriculture Department in 2018, after Secretary Sonny Perdue was angry to discover that an employee he needed to meet with was working from home , according to three administration officials. In response, he slashed by half a robust program used by tens of thousands of employees. … The Education and Interior departments and the Environmental Protection Agency, as well as parts of Commerce and Health and Human Services departments, soon followed. The Department of Veterans Affairs, where telework is popular in the benefits division, is pushing for restrictions in contract talks. The Social Security Administration abruptly canceled a six-year-old pilot program for 12,000 operations employees in November, citing ‘increased wait times and unacceptable delays’ to customer service” External link

Lisa Rein reports : “With the House hurtling toward a full chamber vote before Christmas, the diplomatic community is gearing up for Phase Two of potential testimony. The White House has announced that President Trump plans to bring forward ‘serious witnesses’ in his likely trial early next year in the Republican-led Senate. That could mean more questioning of witnesses from Senate Democrats, or cross-examination by Republicans — and with it more steep legal fees. ‘A few weeks ago I was hoping we wouldn’t need to raise more money,’ Eric Rubin, a former ambassador to Bulgaria who is now president of the American Foreign Service Association, told the group. ‘But as of now,’ Rubin said, ‘we have a very clear statement that the White House will call witnesses, and that includes our colleagues.’ … The group has raised more than $250,000 for a legal-defense fund for nine of the 17 witnesses who testified about whether Trump and the White House pressured Ukraine to investigate the president’s political opponents” External link

Lisa Rein writes : “his book portrays his sense of betrayal by his staff, a group he had no hand in hiring, and by a White House he says refused to come to his defense” External link

WashingtonPost Monday, October 21, 2019 2:53:00 PM EAT

Lisa Rein writes ( about David Shulkin ) : “Shulkin describes early successes in improving access to primary and mental health care, making wait times public, and expanding care to remote areas through technology known as telehealth. Ambitious projects to revolutionize electronic health records and improve Choice, the Obama-era law expanding private-sector care, were in the pipeline,” External link

Lisa Rein said : “So many of these cases were instances in which, if these people’s cancer had been caught early, then it could have been eliminated or bigger steps could have been taken,” “But by the time they figured out that this mistake had been made many years ago, they had late-stage cancer” External link

WashingtonPost Thursday, September 5, 2019 12:12:00 AM EAT

Lisa Rein reports : “The Forest Service had planned to begin layoffs of 1,110 employees by September, believed to be the largest number of cuts to the federal workforce in a decade. The offices of Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue and Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta, whose agencies oversee the 25 Job Corps Civilian Conservation Centers and dozens of others in urban areas, said in a joint statement that the administration is committed to making the program ‘better and stronger.’” External link

WashingtonPost Thursday, June 20, 2019 6:18:00 PM EAT

Lisa Rein reports : “The hostile reception, alongside tepid support from Republicans, left the plan’s chances in doubt and raised the possibility that the administration would dismantle some of the agency’s functions on its own, even if Congress fails to pass legislation to do it. … Critics say the proposal is a ploy to politicize the civil service by installing political appointees close to the White House” External link

WashingtonPost Wednesday, May 22, 2019 3:49:00 PM EAT

Lisa Rein reports : “For Trump, giving veterans more choices will probably be a reelection theme next year as he seeks shorter waits and potentially better care for veterans, a crucial constituency. Democrats now in charge in the House are resisting. They say proposed rules on when veterans could go outside VA are too lenient and would damage the government system — a long-held fear of Democrats who worry that union jobs will be siphoned off and the government system dismantled” External link

WashingtonPost Friday, March 22, 2019 5:54:00 PM EAT

Lisa Rein reports : “The tense exchange between Georgia Coffey, a nationally recognized expert in workplace diversity and race relations, and John Ullyot, who remains VA’s chief communications official, occurred during a low point in Trump’s presidency: when he blamed ‘many sides’ for the deadly clash in Charlottesville without singling out the white nationalists and neo-Nazis who rallied there. … Coffey, a career senior executive at VA, pressed the agency’s leaders to issue a statement making it clear that VA stood against such a ‘repugnant display of hate and bigotry by white supremacists, neo-Nazis, and the Ku Klux Klan,’ according to the emails. … Ullyot told Coffey to stand down, the emails show. A person familiar with their dispute … told The Post that Ullyot was enforcing a directive from the White House, where officials were scrambling to contain the fallout from Trump’s comments, and they did not want government officials to call further attention to the controversy” External link
