ACTION: Notice. The Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB) intends to request approval of a revised information collection from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3506 and 3507). The MSPB Appeal Form (MSPB Form 185) has been revised. At this time, the MSPB is requesting public comments on the revised MSPB Form 185, which is available for review on the MSPB’s Web site at http://www.mspb.gov. DATES: Written comments must be received on or before February 1, 2013. ADDRESSES: Submit written comments on the collection of information to William D. Spencer, Clerk of the Board, Merit Systems Protection Board, 1615 M Street NW., Washington, DC 20419. Because of possible mail delays, respondents are encouraged to submit emcdonald on DSK67QTVN1PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:30 Nov 30, 2012 Jkt 229001 Revised Appeal Form 185 The instructions at the beginning of the written appeal form have been streamlined and reorganized, with a focus on more clearly setting forth the Board’s review authority; the option to file an appeal electronically; the time limits for filing an appeal; and where to file an appeal. In addition, the Privacy Act Statement and Public Reporting Burden notice have been moved to the end of the form. Part 1—Appellant and Agency Information: This section remains largely unchanged, apart from the inclusion of some updated language (such as ‘‘cell’’ under telephone numbers in box 3). In box 11, ‘‘Hearing,’’ the sentence, ‘‘If you choose to have a hearing, the administrative judge will notify you when and where it is to be held[,]’’ has been eliminated, due to its potentially misleading character (the right to a hearing is PO 00000 Frm 00068 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 conditional on a finding of jurisdiction). The appellant’s certification that ‘‘all of the statements made in this form and any attachments are true, complete, and accurate * * * ’’ has been moved from box 12, to its own section at the end of the form. Part 2—Agency Personnel Action or Decision (non-retirement): The introductory language to this section has been altered, reflecting the following change in the overall organization of the form: whereas the current version solicits information about nonretirement actions in this part and then subsequently cites to affirmative defenses to such actions and particular classes of such actions (IRA, USERRA, and VEOA) in two separate sections, the revised form addresses all nonretirement actions and associated claims in Part 2. The present Part 4, which invites appellants to check boxes next to various affirmative defense claims, a frequent source of confusion, has been eliminated. Information regarding such claims, along with the descriptions of IRA, USERRA, and VEOA appeals, currently contained in Part 5, has been placed together in a new Appendix A and referenced at the beginning of this revised section, which provides as follows: Complete this part if you are appealing a Federal agency personnel action or decision other than a decision addressing your retirement rights or benefits.
