NOTES: A PRESIDENTIAL MEMORANDUM DATED DECEMBER 22, 2010, ENTITLED “FREEZING FEDERAL EMPLOYEE PAY SCHEDULES AND RATES THAT ARE SET BY ADMINISTRATIVE DISCRETION,” PROVIDES THAT EXECUTIVE AGENCIES SHOULD SUSPEND INCREASES TO PAY SCHEDULES SET BY ADMINISTRATION DISCRETION IN 2011 AND 2012. ALSO, UNDER SECTION 147 OF THE CONTINUING APPROPRIATIONS ACT, 2011 (PUB. L. 111-242), AS AMENDED BY SECTION 1(a) OF THE CONTINUING APPROPRIATIONS AND SURFACE TRANSPORTATION EXTENSIONS ACT, 2011 (PUB. L. 111-322), GENERAL SCHEDULE PAY RATES WERE FROZEN IN 2011 AND 2012. (GENERALLY, SPECIAL RATE SCHEDULES HAVE BEEN ADJUSTED BY THE SAME AMOUNT AS THE GENERAL SCHEDULE GENERAL INCREASE.) BASED ON THESE ACTIONS, SPECIAL RATE SCHEDULES UNDER 5 U.S.C. 5305 ARE NOT BEING INCREASED IN JANUARY 2011, EXCEPT SPECIAL RATE SCHEDULES IN NONFOREIGN AREAS THAT ARE SUBJECT TO SPECIAL ADJUSTMENT PURSUANT TO THE NON-FOREIGN AREA RETIREMENT EQUITY ASSURANCE ACT OF 2009 (PUBLIC LAW 111-84, OCTOBER 28, 2009).

IN ORDER TO MAINTAIN SPECIAL RATES IN NONFOREIGN AREAS AS REQUIRED UNDER SECTION 1911 OF PUBLIC LAW 111-84, THE ABOVE PAY RATES INCLUDE AN ADDITIONAL ADJUSTMENT (ABOVE THE SPECIAL RATE THAT WOULD OTHERWISE APPLY) EQUAL TO 16.46 PERCENT OF THE BASE GENERAL SCHEDULE (SEE HTTP://WWW.OPM.GOV/OCA/11TABLES/HTML/GS.ASP), WHICH IS TWO-THIRDS OF THE 24.69 PERCENT LOCALITY PAY PERCENTAGE AUTHORIZED FOR THE STATE OF ALASKA LOCALITY PAY AREA IN 2011. (IN 2010, AN ADDITIONAL ADJUSTMENT EQUAL TO 4.72 PERCENT OF THE BASE GENERAL SCHEDULE APPLIED; IN 2011, THE ADDITIONAL ADJUSTMENT INCREASES TO 16.46 PERCENT ALONG WITH FURTHER REDUCTION OF THE APPLICABLE COST-OF-LIVING ALLOWANCE.) THIS ADDITIONAL ADJUSTMENT IS ADDED AFTER ALL OTHER CALCULATIONS ARE DONE, INCLUDING THE APPLICATION OF THE STATUTORY PAY CAP UNDER 5 U.S.C. 5305(a)(1).
