The 2017 locality pay percentages became effective on the first day of the first pay period beginning on or after January 1, 2017 (January 8, 2017). An employee’s locality rate of pay is computed by increasing his or her scheduled annual rate of pay (as defined in 5 CFR 531.602) by the applicable locality pay percentage. (See 5 CFR 531.604 and 531.609.) Executive Order 13756 establishes the new Executive Schedule which incorporates a 1 percent increase required under 5 U.S.C. 5318 (rounded to the nearest $100). By law, Executive Schedule officials are not authorized to receive locality payments. Executive Order 13756 establishes the 2017 range of rates of basic pay for members of the Senior Executive Service (SES) under 5 U.S.C. 5382. The minimum rate of basic pay for the SES is $124,406 in 2017. The maximum rate of the SES rate range is $187,000 (level II of the Executive Schedule) for SES members who are covered by a certified SES performance appraisal system and $172,100 (level III of the Executive Schedule) for SES members who are not covered by a certified SES performance appraisal system. The minimum rate of basic pay for the senior-level (SL) and scientific and professional (ST) rate range was increased by 1 percent ($124,406 in 2017), which is the amount of the across-the-board GS increase. The applicable maximum rate of the SL/ST rate range is $187,000 (level II of the Executive Schedule) for SL or ST employees who are covered by a certified SL/ST performance appraisal system and $172,100 (level III of the Executive Schedule) for SL or ST employees who are not covered by a certified SL/ST performance appraisal system. Agencies with certified performance appraisal systems for SES members and employees in SL and ST positions must also apply a higher aggregate limitation on pay—up to the Vice President’s salary ($240,100 in 2017.) Note that Section 101 of the Further Continuing and Security Assistance Appropriations Act, 2017 (Pub. L. 114– 254, December 10, 2016) provides continuing appropriations to Federal agencies through April 28, 2017, or the date of enactment of specified appropriations legislation. Under this continuing resolution, the authority and conditions provided in FY 2016 appropriations laws continue to apply. This language means that the freeze on VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:43 Mar 08, 2017 Jkt 241001 the payable pay rates for certain senior political appointees at 2013 levels—as provided in section 738 of division E of the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2016, Public Law 114–113, December 18, 2015—continues into calendar year 2017. On January 10, 2017, OPM issued a memorandum (CPM 2017–02) on the pay freeze for certain senior political officials. (See https://www.chcoc.gov/ content/pay-freeze-certain-seniorpolitical-officials.) Executive Order 13756 provides that the rates of basic pay for administrative law judges (ALJs) under 5 U.S.C. 5372 are increased by 1 percent, rounded to the nearest $100 in 2017. The rate of basic pay for AL–1 is $161,900 (equivalent to the rate for level IV of the Executive Schedule). The rate of basic pay for AL–2 is $157,900. The rates of basic pay for AL–3/A through 3/F range from $108,100 to $149,600. The rates of basic pay for members of Contract Appeals Boards are calculated as a percentage of the rate for level IV of the Executive Schedule. (See 5 U.S.C. 5372a.) Therefore, these rates of basic pay are increased by 1 percent in 2017. On November 17, 2016, OPM issued a memorandum on behalf of the President’s Pay Agent (the Secretary of Labor and the Directors of the Office of Management and Budget and OPM) that continues GS locality payments for ALJs and certain other non-GS employee categories in 2017. By law, EX officials, SES members, employees in SL/ST positions, and employees in certain other equivalent pay systems are not authorized to receive locality payments. (Note: An exception applies to certain grandfathered SES, SL, and ST employees stationed in a nonforeign area on January 2, 2010. See CPM 2009– 27 at https://www.chcoc.gov/content/ nonforeign-area-retirement-equityassurance-act.) The memo is available at https://www.opm.gov/policy-dataoversight/pay-leave/salaries-wages/ continuation-of-locality-payments-fornon-general-schedule-employeesnovember-17-2016.pdf. On December 27, 2016, OPM issued a memorandum (CPM 2016–20) on the January 2017 pay adjustments. (See https://www.chcoc.gov/content/january2017-pay-adjustments.) The memorandum transmitted Executive Order 13756 and provided the 2017 salary tables, locality pay areas and percentages, and information on general pay administration matters and other related information. The ‘‘2017 Salary Tables’’ posted on OPM’s Web site at http://www.opm.gov/policy-dataoversight/pay-leave/salaries-wages/ are the official rates of pay for affected PO 00000 Frm 00057 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 13145 employees and are hereby incorporated as part of this notice.
