OFFICE OF PERSONNEL MANAGEMENT

5 CFR Part 532

RIN 3206-AN40


Prevailing Rate Systems; Definition of Kent County, Michigan, and 
Cameron County, Texas, to Nonappropriated Fund Federal Wage System Wage 
Areas

AGENCY: U.S. Office of Personnel Management.

ACTION: Final rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This rule amends the geographic boundaries of two 
nonappropriated fund (NAF) Federal Wage System (FWS) wage areas. Based 
on recommendations of the Federal Prevailing Rate Advisory Committee 
(FPRAC), the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) is defining Kent 
County, Michigan, as an area of application county to the Macomb, MI, 
NAF FWS wage area and Cameron County, Texas, as an area of application 
county to the Nueces, TX, NAF FWS wage area. These changes are 
necessary due to NAF FWS employees working in Kent and Cameron 
Counties, and the counties are not currently defined to NAF wage areas.

DATES: Effective date: This regulation is effective on January 19, 
2017.
    Applicability date: This change applies on the first day of the 
first applicable pay period beginning on or after February 21, 2017.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Madeline Gonzalez, by telephone at 
(202) 606-2858 or by email at pay-leave-policy@opm.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On August 24, 2016, OPM issued a proposed 
rule (81 FR 57809) to define Kent County, Michigan, as an area of 
application county to the Macomb, MI, NAF FWS wage area and Cameron 
County, Texas, as an area of application county to the Nueces, TX, NAF 
FWS wage area.
    FPRAC, the national labor-management committee responsible for 
advising OPM on matters concerning the pay of FWS employees, reviewed 
and recommended this change by consensus.
    The proposed rule had a 30-day comment period, during which OPM 
received no comments.

Regulatory Flexibility Act

    I certify that these regulations will not have a significant 
economic impact on a substantial number of small entities because they 
will affect only Federal agencies and employees.
