Date: 2006-09-12
Agency: Merit Systems Protection Board, Agencies and Commissions
The U.S. Merit Systems Board is requesting approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to conduct employee surveys for a period of three years from the approval date. Before submitting the Information Collection Request (ICR) to OMB for review and approval, MSPB is soliciting comments on specific aspects of the information collection in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A)). In this regard, we are soliciting comments on the public reporting burden. The reporting burden for the collection of information on this form is estimated to average 30 minutes per respondent, including time for reviewing instructions and completing the survey. In addition, the MSPB invites comments on (1) whether the proposed 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 clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) ways to minimize 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.

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.

Proposed Amendment to the Rule Regarding the Filing of Constructive Removal Complaints by Administrative Law Judges
Document Number: 05-16217
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2005-08-16
Agency: Merit Systems Protection Board, Agencies and Commissions
The Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB or ``the Board'') is revising its regulation governing actions filed by an administrative law judge (ALJ) who alleges a constructive removal under 5 U.S.C. 7521. The revision repeals the standard stated by the regulation for establishing such a removal in light of the Board's determination in recent cases that the ALJ must show involuntary separation from the position of ALJ. As discussed below, the revised standard for establishing the constructive removal of an ALJ is addressed in the Board's cases and will not be incorporated in the revised regulation, which is retained solely to provide procedural guidance for ALJ- initiated actions alleging violation of section 7521.
