When does telework come into force administration officials and who can work remotely


The coronavirus pandemic has accelerated the digital transformation jobs in large private companies, but above all in public administrations, which also have the economic support of European funds from the Recovery, Transformation and Resilience Plan to make these momentous changes. The objective is facilitate teleworking, a formula that has been shown to be efficient and that contributes to savings in a context of soaring energy prices; guarantee the security of information and communications, increase productivity and, also, the mobility of troops.

The plan is included in Agenda Digital Spain 2025promoted by the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Digital Transformation, which includes the start-up of 168,500 new generation jobs, in which cybersecurity measures are prioritized even when working remotely, in the General State Administration (AGE). Another of the legs for this transformation is the recent tender for an important consulting contract, valued at 50 million euros and with an expected development of 18 months, for the provision of services for the execution of the transformation project associated with the job of the users of the AGE, for which large communications and consulting companies.

The new specifications -the previous one was annulled on October 15-, to which it has had access Informationpredicts that the organisms of the AGE will migrate to a new end-to-end managed model, with some primary objectives, according to the contract financed with European funds, of quality, transformation, efficiency and flexibility. He highlights that “the Covid-19 crisis has highlighted the need for collaborative and mobility solutions in the jobs of Public employees. For this, it is essential to undertake a transformative project for the implementation of the new generation job, addressing both the technological components and those linked to the digital capabilities of public employees”.

The Government admits that the current job situation in the AGE is very heterogeneous, but with a great preponderance of a classic model

In addition to this contract, the project of the Intelligent Digital Workstation of the AGE provides supplies of new equipment – desktop computers, laptops and monitors – and new ‘software’ licenses related to collaboration, management and productivity. The Government admits that the current situation of the job in the AGE is very heterogeneous in the different agencies, but with a great preponderance of a classic model based on a computer located in the office, optional mobility based on corporate laptops dissociated from the job mobile terminals with limited or no possibility of access to corporate resources and little technology development workplace virtualization.

The Administration is prepared for the digital transformation

This context, it acknowledges, forced, on the occasion of the declaration of the state of alarm by Covid, the urgent hiring by each body and independently of the resources to provide employees with the necessary means to carry out their work remotely, from your home. “This hiring, due to the urgency, was carried out in a disjointed manner, with diverse technologies and with the aim of providing, fundamentally, the necessary centralized corporate resources, normally based on virtual desktop services in the cloud, forcing most cases encourage employees to use their own equipment to connect to these services”.

The Executive will give the green light in the coming weeks to the Royal Decree that will allow and regulate remote work in the AGE, something that the Civil Service unions urge after the agreement signed in April last year. The norm will regulate work from the private home up to three days a week -on a voluntary and reversible basis- for the majority of State officials, in order to facilitate energy savings and efficiency. Until now, it was only regulated for one day and one of the great drawbacks is that the Administration’s systems and equipment are obsolete and, above all, were acquired from disjointed and urgent way during the pandemic.
