This memorandum of Agreement (MOA) is jointly entered into by and between the Naval Air Warfare Center Training Systems Division (NAWCTSD, Employer) and the American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE) Local 2113 (Union).  The Employer and the Union agree that a cost effective Telework Program offers the potential for increased productivity and improvements in employee morale, motivation, job satisfaction and retention.  The parties fully support the NAVAIR policy encouraging cost effective teleworking to the maximum extent possible without diminishing employee or mission performance.  The parties also agree the Telework Program will be administered in accordance with criteria outlined in the NAVAIR Instruction.  To this end, the parties have negotiated the following agreement with respect to the implementation and use of the NAVAIR Telework Program Instruction (12700.2)(1.3MB):
