With the start of the new fiscal year for the federal government (October 1) it's a good time to clarify some items that previously may have been unclear.
All CWT supervisors will now be using standardized timecards for recording your time. This is designed to record your actual arrival and departure times to nearest 15 minutes, rather than to just record whether or not you showed up. For example, if you arrive at 9:06a, it can be counted as 9:00a; if you arrive at 9:09a, it will be counted as a start time of 9:15a.
