Susan Tsui Grundmann, Chairman, Merit Systems Protection Board

A new law signed by the President last month gives the Veterans Affairs secretary lots of discretion to fire or demote members of the Senior Executive Service. The law came in response to management problems resulting in long wait times for admittance to VA facilities. The law means SESers at VA work under a different set of civil service rules than those in the rest of government. It also imposes new burdens on the Merit Systems Protection Board. The board issued an interim final rule on how the agency will carry out the new mandate. Chairwoman Susan Tsui Grundmann joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive to discuss the comments the board received about the rule and what the law does require of the board.

Susan Tsui Grundmann, Chairman, MSPB

Many federal offices took a hit last year, when agencies furloughed employees because Congress couldn't agree on a budget and brought the government to a halt. Now, nearly a year later, the Merit Systems Protection Board is still reviewing complaints from some of those furloughed employees. As part of our special report Trust Redefined: Reconnecting Government and Its Employees, Tom and Emily spoke with Board chairman Susan Tsui Grundman on the Federal Drive. From where she sits, she says it looks as if the federal workforce hasn't quite recovered yet.
