The Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB) is providing notice of an extension of time in which parties may file amicus briefs in the matter of Hyginus U. Aguzie v. Office of Personnel Management, MSPB Docket Number DC-0731-09-0261-R-1.
The Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB) is Providing Notice of the Opportunity to File Amicus Briefs in the Matter of Larry L. Evans v. Department of Veterans Affairs, MSPB Docket Number AT-3330-09-0953-I-1.
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).
