OFFICE OF PERSONNEL MANAGEMENT

5 CFR Part 532

RIN 3206-AM49


Prevailing Rate Systems; Abolishment of Monmouth, NJ, 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 Monmouth, New Jersey, nonappropriated fund (NAF) 
Federal Wage System (FWS) wage area and redefine Monmouth County, NJ, 
to the Burlington, NJ, NAF wage area. These changes are necessary 
because the closure of Fort Monmouth left the Monmouth wage area 
without an activity having the capability to conduct a local wage 
survey.

DATES: Effective date: This regulation is effective on February 27, 
2012.

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

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On August 25, 2011, the U.S. Office of 
Personnel Management (OPM) issued an interim rule (76 FR 53045) to 
abolish the Monmouth, New Jersey, nonappropriated fund (NAF) Federal 
Wage System (FWS) wage area and redefine Monmouth County, NJ, to the 
Burlington, NJ, NAF wage area. FWS employees remaining in the Monmouth 
wage area were transferred to the Burlington wage area schedule on the 
first day of the first applicable pay period beginning on or after 
October 15, 2011. 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.

adopted as final with no changes.
