NOTES: INCORPORATING THE 1.4 PERCENT JANUARY 2018 GENERAL SCHEDULE INCREASE.

THIS SPECIAL RATE TABLE INCLUDES LOCATIONS WHERE APPLICABLE GENERAL SCHEDULE LOCALITY RATES OF PAY EXCEED THE SPECIAL RATES OF PAY AT CERTAIN GRADES AND STEPS. EMPLOYEES WHO ARE COVERED BY A SPECIAL RATE SCHEDULE ARE ENTITLED TO THE APPLICABLE SPECIAL RATE WITHIN THAT SCHEDULE UNLESS THEY ARE ENTITLED TO A HIGHER RATE OF BASIC PAY UNDER OTHER AUTHORITY (E.G., A HIGHER LOCALITY RATE OR A RETAINED RATE).

LOCATIONS THAT ARE PART OF THE LOS ANGELES-LONG BEACH, CA, LOCALITY PAY AREA THAT WERE PREVIOUSLY COVERED BY THIS TABLE HAVE BEEN REMOVED DUE TO HIGHER LOCALITY PAY.
