|Notice of Audit|
The Office of Arbitration Services of the National Mediation Board commenced its annual audit of all outstanding cases assigned to public law boards, special boards of adjustment and the National Railroad Adjustment Board on July 24, 2009.
Parties have been sent a link which will allow that party to review cases assigned to a special board of adjustment and/or public law board along with an instruction sheet and copies of the audit sheet. The audit sheet must be completed and returned to the Office of Arbitration Services Department by the close of business on August 24, 2009. These instructions and audit sheet are also placed on this web site for the parties’ convenience.
For any public law board or special board of adjustment for which no audit sheet is submitted by the carrier and the labor organization, funding for that public law board/special board of adjustment will be terminated. Due to the limited monies available for Section 3 activities, this will be strictly enforced and the public law board/special board of adjustment will not be funded in Fiscal Year 2010.
The purpose of this audit is to ensure that the Board’s records are accurate and to assist the Board in assuring that taxpayers’ funds are being spent effectively and efficiently.
Any questions concerning the cases or the audit process should be directed to Priscilla Dyson, Arbitration, Program Specialist, or Darrell Dancer, Paralegal Specialist at 202-692-5055 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
