    The Federal Prevailing Rate Advisory Committee is composed of a 
Chair, five representatives from labor unions holding exclusive 
bargaining rights for Federal blue-collar employees, and five 
representatives from Federal agencies. Entitlement to membership on the 
Committee is provided for in 5 U.S.C. 5347.
    The Committee's primary responsibility is to review the Prevailing 
Rate System and other matters pertinent to establishing prevailing 
rates under subchapter IV, chapter 53, 5 U.S.C., as amended, and from 
time to time advise the U.S. Office of Personnel Management.
    These scheduled meetings are open to the public with both labor and 
management representatives attending. During the meetings either the 
labor members or the management members may caucus separately to devise 
strategy and formulate positions. Premature disclosure of the matters 
discussed in

these caucuses would unacceptably impair the ability of the Committee 
to reach a consensus on the matters being considered and would disrupt 
substantially the disposition of its business. Therefore, these 
caucuses will be closed to the public because of a determination made 
by the Director of the U.S. Office of Personnel Management under the 
provisions of section 10(d) of the Federal Advisory Committee Act (Pub. 
L. 92-463) and 5 U.S.C. 552b(c)(9)(B). These caucuses may, depending on 
the issues involved, constitute a substantial portion of a meeting.
    Annually, the Chair compiles a report of pay issues discussed and 
concluded recommendations. These reports are available to the public, 
upon written request to the Committee.
    The public is invited to submit material in writing to the Chair on 
Federal Wage System pay matters felt to be deserving of the Committee's 
attention. Additional information on these meetings may be obtained by 
contacting the Committee at U.S. Office of Personnel Management, 
Federal Prevailing Rate Advisory Committee, Room 5H27, 1900 E Street, 
NW., Washington, DC 20415, (202) 606-9400.
