Open Government InitiativeOpen Government Initiative: Transparency, Participation, Collaboration
Open Government Plan - April 7, 2010
The U.S. Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB) is committed to the principles outlined in President Obama's Memorandum on Transparency and Open Government, issued on January 21, 2009. We will make more of its mission-related and financial data available and accessible to the public, researchers, and academics. We will operate under a presumption that requested records should be released unless there is an overwhelming need to protect the privacy interests of individuals or the security concerns of other Federal agencies.
This Open Government Webpage provides direct links to data, documents, and other useful information frequently requested under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) or that the MSPB otherwise believes is of interest to the public. We will be proactive in our approach to transparency, participation, and collaboration, and we will update this site frequently.
The MSPB's records, like those throughout the Federal Government, belong to the American people. If you have comments, complaints, or suggestions regarding the content of MSPB's Open Government Webpage, please contact us at open firstname.lastname@example.org.

In accordance with the Open Government Directive, the MSPB delegated a high-level senior official to be accountable for the quality and objectivity of its Federal spending information. This senior leader will ensure that the information conforms to OMB guidance on information quality and adequate systems and processes are in place within the MSPB to promote such conformity.
