August 26, 2011 -- Maybe you've dealt with Merit Systems Protection Board judges and adjudications.

Or, maybe you've read an MSPB report on an issue affecting the federal workforce.

The agency houses both of these programs, but that's not all it does.

From reviewing regulations released by the Office of Personnel Management, to stakeholder outreach and training, MSPB has several initiatives that you might not be aware of.

And, like all federal agencies, MSPB is facing budget cuts, and dealing with a large percentage of critical staff eligible to retire.

Host Debra Roth will sit down with MSPB Executive Director Steve Lenkart and John Crum, MSPB's director of Office of Policy and Evaluation, to hear how the agency is meeting these challenges while continuing to work on a variety of programs.
