Guidance on Place of Performance Contract Requirements

Office of the Under Secretary of Defense – In March 2020, the Department of Defense (DoD) dramatically expanded the use of alternative work arrangements, including telework and remote work, for Service Members and DoD civilian employees to stem the spread of COVID-19. The Department has experienced many unexpected benefits from the expanded telework flexibilities, resulting in increased efficiencies and effectiveness in the accomplishment of our mission. On March 16, 2022, the Deputy Secretary of Defense issued memorandum, “DoDWorkforce Guidance for Final Reentry of DoD Civilian Personnel” (Attachment 2) to providethe Department direction for the reentry of DoD civilians into the workplace. Our contracting
