As you may remember, we were concerned that MSPB had mailed us the final report, meaning the electronic version would probably not be made publicly available through FOIAOnline. When we logged into the account today, an electronic version of the MSPB’s response and the requested report were available for download.


Be sure to check out our next post to see what happens when we try to use FOIAOnline’s search system to fund the released record…
