OFFICE OF PERSONNEL MANAGEMENT

5 CFR Part 532

RIN 3206--AM38


Prevailing Rate Systems; Abolishment of Cumberland, ME, as a 
Nonappropriated Fund Federal Wage System Wage Area

AGENCY: U.S. Office of Personnel Management.

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: The U.S. Office of Personnel Management is issuing a final 
rule to abolish the Cumberland, Maine, nonappropriated fund (NAF) 
Federal Wage System (FWS) wage area and redefine Cumberland, Kennebec, 
and Penobscot Counties, ME, to the York, ME, NAF wage area. Aroostook, 
Hancock, Knox, Sagadahoc, and Washington Counties, ME, will no longer 
be defined. These changes are necessary because the closure of the 
Naval Air Station Brunswick left the Cumberland wage area without an 
activity having the capability to conduct a local wage survey.

DATES: Effective date: This regulation is effective on November 14, 
2011. Applicability date: This regulation applies on the first day of 
the first applicable pay period beginning on or after July 25, 2011.

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

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On June 2, 2011, the U.S. Office of 
Personnel Management (OPM) issued an interim rule (76 FR 31785) to 
abolish the Cumberland, Maine, nonappropriated fund (NAF) Federal Wage 
System (FWS) wage area and redefine Cumberland, Kennebec, and Penobscot 
Counties, ME, to the York, ME, NAF 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, reviewed and recommended these changes by consensus. The 
interim rule had a 30-day comment period, during which OPM received no 
comments.

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.
