OPM RIN: 3206-AJ62 Publication ID: Fall 2002 
Title: Pay Under the General Schedule; Subpart F--Locality-Based Comparability Payments 
Abstract: Under current regulations, locality pay area boundaries change automatically whenever the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) modifies the geographic coverage of a metropolitan statistical area (MSA) or a consolidated metropolitan statistical area. OMB plans wholesale modifications in metropolitan area definitions in 2003 based on new criteria and 2000 census data. We plan to tie our locality pay area definitions to the geographic coverage of MSAs as defined in OMB Bulletin 99-4 so that locality pay area boundaries will not automatically change when OMB revises its metropolitan area definitions. This will allow the President's Pay Agent and the Federal Salary Council the opportunity to review the new metropolitan area definitions to see if they are appropriate for use in the locality pay program.
