Office of Personnel Management.
The Office of Personnel Management is issuing a final rule to abolish the San Francisco, CA, nonappropriated fund (NAF) Federal Wage System (FWS) wage area and redefine San Francisco County as an area of application to the Santa Clara, CA, NAF FWS wage area. This change is necessary because the closure of Fort Mason Officers' Club left the San Francisco wage area without a host activity to conduct local NAF wage surveys.
This rule is effective on June 17, 2005.Start Further Info

On November 14, 2003, the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) published an interim rule (68 FR 64493) that abolished the San Francisco, CA, nonappropriated fund (NAF) Federal Wage System (FWS) wage area and redefined San Francisco County as an area of application to the Santa Clara, CA, NAF FWS wage area. The interim rule had a 30-day comment period, during which OPM received no comments. The change was necessary because the closure of Fort Mason Officers' Club left the San Francisco wage area without a host activity to conduct local NAF wage surveys. Because of downsizing caused by closures of Federal installations in the San Francisco wage area, no other NAF employer in the wage area has sufficient local personnel or financial resources to conduct local NAF wage surveys.
NAF FWS employees in San Francisco County were placed on the Santa Clara wage schedule on November 30, 2003—the date the next wage schedule for the San Francisco wage area would have become effective if the wage area had continued as a separate wage area. The Federal Prevailing Rate Advisory Committee, the national labor-management committee that advises OPM on matters affecting the pay of FWS employees, reviewed and recommended this wage area redefinition by majority vote.
