Government job is relatively easy and I have some spare time. I would like to find an additional job (remote, private session, contractor, IT related), which is totally unrelated to my federal position, do I still need to report my private section job to my agency?

I have not found one yet, but planning to find one. Maybe freelance programmer, there are some freelance websites. Is there any policy limiting federal employees to work in private section at the same time?

Thanks.

You need to submit a request to someone in your organization... guess you can start with HR. As long as you inform your organization and they confirm there is no conflict of interest, then you may be able to get permission. But you need to get permission.
