This ICR is necessary for individuals who file appeals with MSPB. The form serves as a guide to appellants in providing all needed information. The MSPB is requesting emergency reinstatement approval from OMB by November 27, 2012. A revised version of the MSPB Appeal Form (Form 185) was approved by OMB on November 5, 2012.

Previous Version of MSPB Appeal Form 185 A revised version of Form 185 was included in the Federal Register notice published on October 29, 2012. (See 77 FR 65586.) That ICR request was approved by OMB on November 5, 2012. The MSPB now requests emergency reinstatement of the same ICR but with the previous version of Form 185. We are concerned that the abrupt implementation of the revised version of the form will be confusing to the parties appearing before MSPB. Indeed, if we implement the revised version only to modify it further following the requisite notice-and-comment periods under the Paperwork Reduction Act, we believe that it will add to any confusion and result in inefficiencies in processing appeals. Most significantly, it will take longer than anticipated to implement a revised form in our e-Appeal Online filing system. This delay will create further confusion for e-filers. Upon approval of this ICR by OMB, we will publish a 60-day notice in the Federal Register seeking pubic comment on the revised version of Form 185 and begin the process of incorporating and testing the revisions in a non-production environment with e-Appeal Online. Estimated Reporting Burden In accordance with the requirements of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, MSPB is soliciting comments on the public reporting burden for this information collection. The public reporting burden for this collection of information is estimated to vary from 20 minutes to 4 hours, with an average of 60 minutes per response, including time for reviewing the form and instructions, searching existing data sources, gathering the data necessary, and completing and reviewing the collection of information.

Previous Version of MSPB Appeal Form 185

    A revised version of Form 185 was included in the Federal Register 
notice published on October 29, 2012. (See 77 FR 65586.) That ICR 
request was approved by OMB on November 5, 2012. The MSPB now requests

version of the form will be confusing to the parties appearing before 
MSPB. Indeed, if we implement the revised version only to modify it 
further following the requisite notice-and-comment periods under the 
Paperwork Reduction Act, we believe that it will add to any confusion 
and result in inefficiencies in processing appeals. Most significantly, 
it will take longer than anticipated to implement a revised form in our 
e-Appeal Online filing system. This delay will create further confusion 
for e-filers. Upon approval of this ICR by OMB, we will publish a 60-

of 1995, MSPB is soliciting comments on the public reporting burden for

hours, with an average of 60 minutes per response, including time for 
reviewing the form and instructions, searching existing data sources, 
gathering the data necessary, and completing and reviewing the 
collection of information.

collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of 
MSPB's functions, including whether the information will have practical 
utility;

(2) the accuracy of MSPB's estimate of burden of the proposed 
collection of information, including the validity of the methodology 
and assumptions used; (3) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and

the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including 
through the use of automated collection techniques, when appropriate, 
and other forms of information technology.
