The State of North Dakota considers telecommuting or "outstationing" of employees to be a viable option to increase employment opportunities throughout the state and to provide workplace flexibility as a key component in recruiting and retaining skilled government workers. Agencies are encouraged to consider a telecommuting or outstationing option prior to advertising vacancies.
