Board for Correction Case Index

""

 

PSC maintains historical abstracts on cases considered by the board. The purpose of the abstracts is to provide a record of Board precedents and examples that can assist potential applicants in preparing applications. The abstracts do not include any identifying facts or information that could be associated with any specific applicant or case considered by the Board.

Board decisions prior to 2000 are posted in redacted form below. Decisions after 2000 are available upon request (BFC@psc.hhs.gov) until they are posted on the web.

Requesters who ask for a decision usually want to receive only material that will help in understanding the process that led to the decision or to improve their own application to the Board. Before releasing information, we will redact information that would be an invasion of privacy if released. The following is a list of the types of information we routinely redact from completed Board for Correction cases:

  • Name of officer who files the application
  • PHS Service Number
  • Social security numbers
  • Birthdates
  • PHS Service Number
  • Office address, telephone number, fax, and email
  • Personal address, telephone number, fax, and email address
  • Personal information of any family member or relative found in the file

In addition, we do not release US Court of Claims decisions for officers who request court decision on Board decisions because the release would identify the officer.
