PRESIDENT CLINTON NAMES SUSANNE T. MARSHALL AS A MEMBER OF THE MERIT SYSTEMS PROTECTION BOARD
The President today announced his intent to nominate Susanne T. Marshall to serve as a Member of the Merit Systems Protection Board.
Susanne T. Marshall, of Falls Church, Virginia, has served on the staff of the Senate Committee on Governmental Affairs since 1985. During that time, she has been responsible for a variety of legislative issues, such as Federal workforce policies, including civil service and postal matters. Ms. Marshall also handles the Committee's budget and reconciliation issues, as well as matters related to the General Accounting Office, the General Services Administration, the Federal Emergency Management Agency, and the National Archives. In addition, she has reviewed and processed all the nominations under the jurisdiction of the committee. Before moving to the Senate, Ms. Marshall served in staff positions in the House of Representatives, including the Committee on Government Operations. Prior to her Capitol Hill career, she worked for attorney W. Carl Reynolds of Macon, Georgia.
The Merit Systems Protection Board protects the integrity of Federal merit systems and the rights of Federal employees working in the systems. In overseeing the personnel practices of the Federal Government, the Board conducts special studies of the merit systems, hears and decides charges of wrongdoing and employee appeals of adverse agency actions, and orders corrective and disciplinary actions when appropriate.
