In the Winter 1992/93 Issue of _Independent Perspective_, the Newsletter of
the Society for Technical Communication's Consulting and Independent
Contracting Professional Interest Committee, Steve Whitney had a front page
story on Telecommuting. His story discussed a federal management project
called Flexiplace, and he claimed the project "identified an extremely
cost-effective means to increase the productivity, morale, and quality of
results obtained by knowledge workers in the federal service."

The project was chartered by the President's Council on Management Improve-
ment to observe the results of eliminating excess job-related travel from
the schedules of federal workers.

Mr. Whitney went on to write: "Strategies for introducing the concept to a
company are worth developing collectively, and I invite any interested
participants to call me at 301-270-4679 to join me in this work."

He ends with: "For information on Flexiplace, call Dr. Wendell Joice,
Research Psychologist, Office of Personnel Management, at 202-606-0860."
