Document Number: 07-4491
Type: Notice
Date: 2007-09-12
Agency: Office of Personnel Management, Personnel Management Office, Agencies and Commissions
This notice publishes the 2006 interim adjustments for the Pacific and Caribbean Nonforeign Area Cost-of-Living Allowance (COLA) areas. The Federal Government conducts COLA surveys in Alaska, Hawaii, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands to set COLA rates. These surveys are conducted once every 3 years on a rotating basis. In between COLA surveys, the Government adjusts COLA rates for the areas not surveyed using the relative change in the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for the COLA area compared with the Washington-Baltimore CPI. The Pacific and Caribbean COLA areas were not surveyed in 2006. Therefore, OPM is calculating and publishing interim adjustments for these COLA areas. This notice also publishes a revised listing of the 2005 estimated Washington, DC, area middle income annual consumer expenditure data.
