Notice of meeting.


The Federal Salary Council will meet at the time and location shown below. The Council is an advisory body composed of representatives of Federal employee organizations and experts in the fields of labor relations and pay policy. The Council makes recommendations to the President's Pay Agent (the Secretary of Labor and the Directors of the Office of Management and Budget and the Office of Personnel Management) about the locality pay program for General Start Printed Page 54505Schedule employees under section 5304 of title 5, United States Code. The Council's recommendations cover the establishment or modification of locality pay areas, the coverage of salary surveys, the process of comparing Federal and non-Federal rates of pay, and the level of comparability payments that should be paid.

The Council will continue its review of the new metropolitan statistical areas announced by the Office of Management and Budget in June 2003, new commuting pattern data, and other information related to establishing or modifying locality pay area boundaries begun at the Council's September 3, 2003 meeting. The Council anticipates completing its discussion of whether any changes should be recommended in locality pay area boundaries and which geographic locations should be surveyed for locality pay purposes. The Council will also review the results of pay comparisons and formulate its recommendations to the President's Pay Agent on pay comparison methods, locality pay rates, and locality pay area boundaries for 2005. The Council anticipates it will complete its work for this year at this meeting and has not scheduled any additional meetings for 2003.
