The total approved FY23 Operating Budget for the Merit System Protection Board is $672,552, an increase of $404,631 or 151.03 percent from the FY22 Approved Budget of $267,921. Personnel Costs comprise 38.37 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 61.63 percent of the FY23 budget.

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.
