There were several ways for employees to reach the NAC, said the Egyptian government spokesman Nader Saad in November. The cabinet had been studying options for bringing employees to the capital, either by contracting with transportation companies or by paying cash for transportation costs.

The Egyptian government stressed in Dec. that it has no intention to dismiss any state employee after moving to the new administrative capital. It affirmed seeking to maintain all employees’ rights along with developing and raising the efficiency of the state’s administrative apparatus and staff.
