[FR Doc. 2021–08653 Filed 4–23–21; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 7590–01–P OFFICE OF PERSONNEL MANAGEMENT January 2021 Pay Schedules Office of Personnel Management. ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: The President adjusted the rates of basic pay and locality payments for certain Federal civilian employees effective in January 2021. The Executive order authorizes a 1.0 percent acrossthe-board increase for statutory pay systems and provides that locality percentages will remain at 2020 levels. This notice serves as documentation for the public record. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Kristen Foy, Pay and Leave, Employee Services, Office of Personnel Management; (202) 606–4194 or payleave-policy@opm.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On December 31, 2020, the President signed Executive Order (E.O.) 13970 (86 FR 421), which implemented pay adjustments for certain Federal civilian employees in January 2021. This is consistent with the President’s alternative pay plan issued under 5 U.S.C. 5303(b) and 5304a on February 10, 2020. The pay rates in E.O. 13901 have been superseded. The publication of this notice satisfies the requirement in Section 5(b) of E.O. 13970 that the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) publish appropriate notice of the 2021 locality payments in the Federal Register. SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00069 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Schedule 1 of E.O. 13970 provides the rates for the 2021 General Schedule (GS) and reflects a 1.0 percent increase from 2020. Executive Order 13970 also includes the percentage amounts of the 2021 locality payments, which remain at 2020 levels. (See Section 5 and Schedule 9 of Executive Order 13970.) General Schedule employees receive locality payments under 5 U.S.C. 5304. Locality payments apply in the United States (as defined in 5 U.S.C. 5921(4)) and its territories and possessions. In 2021, locality payments ranging from 15.95 percent to 41.44 percent apply to GS employees in the 54 locality pay areas. The 2021 locality pay area definitions can be found at: https:// www.opm.gov/policy-data-oversight/ pay-leave/salaries-wages/2021/localitypay-area-definitions/. The 2021 locality pay percentages became effective the first day of the first pay period beginning on or after January 1, 2021 (January 3, 2021). 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 13970 establishes the new Executive Schedule (EX), which incorporates a 1.0 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 13970 establishes the 2021 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 $132,552 in 2021. The maximum rate of the SES rate range is $199,300 (level II of the Executive Schedule) for SES members who are covered by a certified SES performance appraisal system and $183,300 (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 1.0 percent ($132,552 in 2021), which is the amount of the across-the-board GS increase. The applicable maximum rate of the SL/ST rate range is $199,300 (level II of the Executive Schedule) for SL or ST employees who are covered by a certified SL/ST performance appraisal system and $183,300 (level III of the Executive Schedule) for SL or ST employees who are not covered by a certified SL/ST performance appraisal system.
