OFFICE OF PERSONNEL MANAGEMENT

5 CFR Part 532

RIN 3206-AM09


Prevailing Rate Systems; Nonappropriated Fund Wage and Survey 
Areas

AGENCY: U.S. Office of Personnel Management.

ACTION: Proposed rule.

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

SUMMARY: The U.S. Office of Personnel Management is issuing a proposed 
rule to correct several minor formatting, spelling, and typographical 
errors in Appendix D to Subpart B of Part 532--Nonappropriated Fund 
(NAF) Wage and Survey Areas. This document would also correct editorial 
or printing errors, inconsistencies, and omissions made in previously 
published rules. The purpose of this rule is not to make policy changes 
for Federal Wage System (FWS) NAF employees but rather to ensure 
Appendix D accurately reflects the correct wage area definitions for 
NAF employees as recommended by the Federal Prevailing Rate Advisory 
Committee (FPRAC). FWS NAF employees would not be affected by the 
corrections in this proposed rule because the lead agency for FWS NAF 
surveys has followed FPRAC recommended wage area definitions when 
conducting wage surveys and publishing wage schedules. Appendix D would 
be reprinted in its entirety.

DATES: We must receive comments on or before May 6, 2010.

ADDRESSES: Send or deliver comments to Jerome D. Mikowicz, Deputy 
Associate Director for Pay and Leave, Employee Services, U.S. Office of 
Personnel Management, Room 7H31, 1900 E Street, NW., Washington, DC 
20415-8200; e-mail pay-performance-policy@opm.gov; or Fax: (202) 606-
4264.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Madeline Gonzalez, (202) 606-2838; e-
mail pay-performance-policy@opm.gov; or FAX: (202) 606-4264.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The U.S. Office of Personnel Management 
(OPM) is issuing a proposed rule to make several minor corrections to 
Appendix D to Subpart B of Part 532--Nonappropriated Fund (NAF) Wage 
and Survey Areas. The revisions contained in this rule concern 
formatting, spelling, and typographical errors. This document would 
also correct editorial or printing errors, inconsistencies, and 
omissions made in previously published rules. The purpose of this rule 
is not to make policy changes for Federal Wage System (FWS) NAF 
employees but rather to ensure Appendix D accurately reflects the 
correct wage area definitions for NAF employees as recommended by the 
Federal Prevailing Rate Advisory Committee (FPRAC). FPRAC is the 
statutory labor-management committee responsible for advising OPM on 
the administration of the FWS. FWS NAF employees would not be affected 
by the corrections in this final rule because the lead agency for FWS 
NAF surveys has followed FPRAC recommended wage area definitions when 
conducting wage surveys and publishing wage schedules. Appendix D is 
being reprinted in its entirety.
    The NAF wage areas where we would correct editorial or printing 
errors, inconsistencies, and omissions are listed below.

Yuma, AZ

    We would delete Yuma County, AZ, as an area of application county 
in the Pima, AZ, NAF wage area and add the Yuma NAF wage area as a 
separate wage area. In an interim rule published in 1991, OPM abolished 
the Imperial, CA, NAF wage area and added Imperial County, CA, as an 
area of application county to the Yuma NAF wage area (56 FR 63865). Due 
to a formatting error, the name of the Yuma NAF wage area was 
incorrectly printed as if it was an area of application county in the 
Pima, AZ, NAF wage area instead of the name of its own wage area.

Los Angeles, CA

    We would delete Del Norte, Humboldt, and Mendocino Counties, CA, 
which incorrectly appear as area of application counties in the Los 
Angeles NAF wage area. These counties were part of the Marin-Sonoma, 
CA, NAF wage area and should have been deleted when OPM abolished the 
Marin-Sonoma NAF wage area in an interim rule published in 1995 (60 FR 
55174).

Dade, FL

    The name of Dade County officially changed to Miami-Dade County in 
1997. This proposed rule would update the name of the Dade NAF wage 
area and of Dade County to reflect the official name.

Burlington, NJ

    We would add Cape May and Salem Counties, NJ, as area of 
application counties in the Burlington NAF wage area. OPM added these 
counties to the Burlington NAF wage area when we abolished the 
Philadelphia, PA, NAF wage area in an interim rule published in 1995 
(60 FR 57145).

Ocean, NJ

    We would delete the Ocean NAF wage area as a separate wage area. 
OPM abolished the Ocean NAF wage area in an interim rule published in 
1995 (60 FR 55423). Ocean County is correctly defined as an area of 
application county in the Burlington NAF wage area.

Craven, NC

    We would delete Onslow County, NC, as an area of application county 
in the Craven NAF wage area. Onslow County was defined as an area of 
application county in the Craven NAF wage area until OPM established it 
as a separate wage area in 1985. This error was never fixed and Onslow 
County continues to appear as an area of application county in the 
Craven NAF wage area.

McLennan, TX

    We would add the McLennan NAF wage area as a separate wage area. 
When Appendix D was initially published in the Federal Register in 
1990, the name of the McLennan NAF wage area was incorrectly printed as 
if it was an area of application county in the Lubbock, TX, NAF wage 
area (55 FR 46140). Later in 1990, OPM deleted McLennan County as an 
area of application county in the Lubbock NAF wage area, but the name 
of the McLennan NAF wage area was not added (55 FR 52267). Since the 
name of the McLennan NAF wage area was not added, it appeared as if 
McLennan County was part of the Lubbock NAF wage area. In an interim 
rule published in 1997, OPM abolished

[[Page 17317]]

the Lubbock NAF wage area (62 FR 28978), and due to the formatting 
error, the McLennan NAF wage area was also deleted.

Kitsap, WA

    We would add Jefferson County, WA, as an area of application county 
in the Kitsap NAF wage area. OPM added this county to the Kitsap NAF 
wage area in an interim rule published in 2000 (65 FR 64337).

Regulatory Flexibility Act

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

U.S. Office of Personnel Management.

John Berry,
Director.
    Accordingly, the U.S. Office of Personnel Management is proposing 
to amend 5 CFR part 532 as follows:

PART 532--PREVAILING RATE SYSTEMS

    1. The authority citation for part 532 continues to read as 
follows:

    Authority:  5 U.S.C. 5343, 5346; 532.707 also issued under 5 
U.S.C. 552.

    2. Revise appendix D to subpart B to read as follows:

Appendix D to Subpart B of Part 532--Nonappropriated Fund Wage and 
Survey Areas

    This appendix lists the wage area definitions for NAF employees. 
With a few exceptions, each area is defined in terms of county units 
or independent cities. Each wage area definition consists of:
    (1) Wage area title. Wage areas usually carry the title of the 
county or counties surveyed.
    (2) Survey area definition. Lists each county or independent 
city in the survey area.
    (3) Area of application definition. Lists each county or 
independent city which, in addition to the survey area, is in the 
area of application.
