Merit Systems Protection Board April 2006 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Testimony by MSPB Employees and Production of Official Records in Legal Proceedings
Document Number: 06-3373
Type: Rule
Date: 2006-04-10
Agency: Merit Systems Protection Board, Agencies and Commissions
This final rule amends the Merit Systems Protection Board's (MSPB or ``the Board'') rules by setting out procedures that requesters have to follow when making demands on or requests to an MSPB employee to produce official records or provide testimony relating to official information in connection with a legal proceeding in which the MSPB is not a party. The final rule establishes procedures to respond to such demands and requests in an orderly and consistent manner. The final rule promotes uniformity in decisions, protects confidential information, provides guidance to requesters, and reduces the potential for both inappropriate disclosures of official information and wasteful allocation of agency resources.
