Mr. Evans is a preference eligible veteran who has filed an appeal with the MSPB alleging that the agency violated his rights under the Veterans Employment Opportunities Act of 1998 (VEOA) when it failed to select him for a position. The issues raised in this matter concern the interplay of the Federal Career Intern Program (FCIP) with VEOA. The FCIP was established in 2000 by Executive Order 13,162 ``to provide for the recruitment and selection of exceptional employees for careers in the public sector,'' to attract exceptional individuals with ``diverse professional experiences, academic training and competencies'' to the Federal workforce,'' and ``to prepare them for careers in analyzing and implementing public programs.'' Exec. Order 13, 162; see Scull v. Department of Homeland Security, 113 M.S.P.R. 287, ] 6 (2010).

The Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB) Is Providing Notice of the Opportunity To File Amicus Briefs in the Matter of Hyginus U. Aguzie v. Office of Personnel Management, MSPB Docket Number DC-0731-09-0261-R-1

Agency: Merit Systems Protection Board, Agencies and Commissions
Aguzie and several other cases pending before the Board present the following legal issue: When the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) directs an agency to separate a tenured employee for suitability reasons, must the Board consider a subsequent appeal under 5 CFR part 731 as contemplated therein, or should the Board instead consider the appeal under 5 U.S.C. Chapter 75, given that the scope of a Chapter 75 appeal is broader than a part 731 appeal and that OPM generally lacks authority to issue regulations limiting statutory rights?
The Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB) is Providing Notice of the Opportunity to File Amicus Briefs in the Matters of Conyers v. Department of Defense, Docket No. CH-0752-09-0925-I-1, and Northover v. Department of Defense, Docket No. AT-0752-10-0184-I-1

Department of Defense, MSPB Docket Number DC-0752-09-0033-R-1, 2009 MSPB 233. Although the Crumpler case is now settled, the legal issue raised in that matter and noted in the January 25 Federal Register notice remains unresolved. The cases of Conyers v.

Agency: Merit Systems Protection Board, Agencies and Commissions
Pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 7521 and 5 CFR 1201.131, the Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB) is providing notice of the opportunity to file amicus briefs in the matter of Stella Crumpler v. Department of Defense, MSPB Docket Number DC-0752-09-0033-R-1, 2009 MSPB 233. Crumpler raises the question of whether, pursuant to 5 CFR Part 732, National Security Position, the rule in Department of the Navy v. Egan, 484 U.S. 518, 530-31 (1988), limiting the scope of MSPB review of a removal decision based on the revocation of a security clearance also applies to a removal from a ``non-critical sensitive'' position due to the employee having been denied continued eligibility for employment in a sensitive position.
