Budget Overview

The total approved FY18 Operating Budget for the Merit System Protection Board is $367,688, a decrease of $114,025 or 23.67 percent from the FY17 Approved Budget of $481,713. Personnel Costs comprise 61.11 percent of the budget for no full-time position(s) and two part-time position(s), and a total of 1.50 FTEs. Total FTEs may include seasonal or temporary positions and may also reflect workforce charged to or from other departments or funds. Operating Expenses account for the remaining 38.89 percent of the FY18 budget.

Consistent with the County Charter, the County Executive makes recommendations on the operating budget for all County departments, offices, and agencies. However, recognizing the Charter-defined roles, the Executive defers significantly to Legislative and Judicial Branch agencies. Questions regarding the approved budgets for Legislative Branch departments should be directed to Mary Jane Berry, 240-777-7930.
