Enclosure (1) to COMDTINST 12630.1
information systems. All telecommuters will comply with the Automated Information
Systems (AIS) Security Manual COMDTINST M5500.13A (series) to reduce risks to
U.S. Coast Guard computers, data, and telecommunications networks. Employees
generally will not have remote access capability, pending further Commandant (G-S)
policy on remote access security issues.
B. Classified information is not allowed at home work sites. Employees shall not gain remote
access (i.e., use modems to enter data files on another computer) to classified data or
EFTO FOUO record messages. An employee will report any and all access to classified
material, whether accidental or not, to the appropriate security officers, who will
declassify personal computing resources under COMDTINST M5500.13A (series).
A. NEGOTIATIONS WITH OTHER AGENCIES. In several areas agencies are forming
consortia either among themselves or with local public or private sector organizations to
create satellite telecommuting facilities, perhaps including Federal Executive Boards, local
governments, and universities. Managers are encouraged to participate in or initiate such
activities if they support mission accomplishment within resource capabilities. Managers
and supervisors should contact their servicing legal office, Command Staff Advisor,
and/or employee relations labor management staff. Managers must fulfill all appropriate
labor relations obligations before concluding any negotiations.
B. GENERAL SERVICES ADMINISTRATION (GSA) SATELLITE OFFICES. The GSA
establishes satellite telecommuting offices in a wide variety of locations. Managers can
identify local availability by contacting the local GSA office.
