Prevailing Rate Systems; Redefinition of the Clayton-Cobb-Fulton, 
Georgia, 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 (OPM) is adopting as 
final the interim rule that redefined the Clayton-Cobb-Fulton, GA, 
nonappropriated fund (NAF) Federal Wage System (FWS) wage area by 
removing Clarke, Clayton, and Fulton Counties, GA, from the wage area 
definition. The name of the wage area will be Cobb, GA. These changes 
are necessary because by the end of October 2013 there will no longer 
be NAF employment in Clarke, Clayton, and Fulton Counties.

DATES: Effective on October 1, 2013.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Madeline Gonzalez, by telephone at 
(202) 606-2838 or by email at pay-leave-policy@opm.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On May 21 2013, OPM issued an interim rule 
(78 FR 29611) to redefine the Clayton-Cobb-Fulton, GA, NAF FWS wage 
area by removing Clarke, Clayton, and Fulton Counties, GA, from the 
wage area definition. The name of the wage area will be Cobb, GA. These 
changes are necessary because by the end of October 2013 there will no 
longer be NAF employment in Clarke, Clayton, and Fulton Counties. The 
Cobb wage area will consist of one survey county (Cobb County) and two 
area of application counties (Bartow and DeKalb Counties). 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.
    In addition, this interim rule updates the name of the Columbus 
Consolidated Government in the Columbus, GA, NAF FWS wage area because 
Columbus is the official name of the entity resulting from the 
consolidation of the City of

Columbus and Muscogee County in 1971.
    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.
