Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB)

The U.S. Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB) has the statutory responsibility to conduct objective, non-partisan studies that assess and evaluate Federal merit systems policies, operations, and practices. See 5 U.S.C. § 1204(a)(3). Our studies are typically government-wide in scope and take a long-term perspective on merit and effective management of the Federal workforce.

Please check out the PDF files available from MSPB that focus on personnel matters  and conduct within the civil service system.    The PDF format of these publications have been designed to serve multiple different audiences and should be enable readers to lcoate and easily review information most relevant to them.
