MSPB Studies Flash

The information below was published in the July 2009 edition of our Issues of Merit newsletter.  We are posting it to MSPB Studies Flash for two reasons.  First, we want to remind our readers about useful sources of HR information.  These are good times to stay informed. 

We also want to ask for your help.  If you have any HR-related Web sites you use to stay informed—and think other Issues of Merit readers could benefit from them—we would like to hear from you.  Click here to share a Web link to your favorite source.  If you like, you can also add a sentence or two that tells us what is good about the Web site.

Look for a future MSPB Studies Flash that lists the Web sites our readers recommend.  We can all be better informed if we pool our resources.
