OFFICE OF PERSONNEL MANAGEMENT

5 CFR Part 532

RIN 3206-AM22


Prevailing Rate Systems: Santa Clara, CA, Tulsa County, OK, and 
Angelina County, TX

AGENCY: U.S. Office of Personnel Management.

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: The U.S. Office of Personnel Management is issuing a final 
rule to define Tulsa County, Oklahoma, as an area of application to the 
Oklahoma, OK, nonappropriated fund (NAF) Federal Wage System (FWS) wage 
area and Angelina County, Texas, as an area of application to the 
Dallas, TX, NAF FWS wage area. These changes are necessary because 
there are NAF FWS employees working in Tulsa and Angelina Counties and 
the counties are not currently defined to NAF wage areas. In addition, 
this final rule correctly amends the Nationwide Schedule of 
Nonappropriated Fund Regular Wage Schedules by removing, under the 
State of California, ``Santa Clara,'' which was abolished as a NAF FWS 
wage area by a final rule published on March 9, 2009.

DATES: This regulation is effective on March 24, 2011.

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

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On August 3, 2010, the U.S. Office of 
Personnel Management (OPM) issued a proposed rule (75 FR 45557) to 
define Tulsa County, Oklahoma, as an area of application to the 
Oklahoma, OK, nonappropriated fund (NAF) Federal Wage System (FWS) wage 
area and Angelina County, Texas, as an area of application to the 
Dallas, TX, NAF FWS wage area. The Federal Prevailing Rate Advisory 
Committee, the national labor-management committee responsible for 
advising OPM on matters concerning the pay of FWS employees, 
recommended these changes by consensus. The proposed rule had a 30-day 
comment period during which OPM received no comments.

CFR Correction

    In addition, this final rule corrects Appendix B to subpart B of 
part 532--Nationwide Schedule of Nonappropriated Fund Regular Wage 
Schedules by removing, under the State of California, ``Santa Clara,'' 
which was abolished as a NAF FWS wage area by a final rule (74 FR 9951) 
published on March 9, 2009.

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.
