What Internet access controls are agencies implementing?
A. The prevailing practice within the federal agencies is not on limiting Internet access but on ensuring that employees are well informed of their organization’s policy regarding their use of the Internet. Many agencies make Internet access available to all employees because it has been determined that the majority of the work force can benefit from such access. In other agencies, approval is restricted and granted on a case by case basis. When developing Internet, personal usage policy, or rules of behavior, the Human Resource component should be involved to ensure the policy is consistent with other personnel policy. See the Personnel Security section of the FASP Area for examples of agency personal use policies.
