From Donald Carlsen, CIO:

1. Has your office supported/been asked to support remote/telework capabilities for your agency or other agencies?

Yes.

2. Was that before or after the coronavirus started spreading?

Before, but to a much lesser extent than we are now.

3. What solutions do you have that enable remote/telework?

  • VPN access
  • Citrix access
  • Office 365 — we are using Microsoft Teams a lot more than we were
