Snow & Dismissal Procedures

This is your portal to information about the operating status of federal agencies.

Our operating status determinations and procedures apply to federal employees in executive agencies located inside the Washington Capital Beltway. These determinations and/or procedures do not apply to employees of the U.S. Postal Service, the government of the District of Columbia, or private sector entities, including contractors. Facilities outside the Beltway may prefer to develop their own plans, since they are subject to different weather and traffic conditions than those inside the Beltway. In unusual situations, however, the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) may issue guidelines affecting facilities outside the Beltway, as well.
