AGENCY:

Office of Personnel Management.

ACTION:

Final rule.

SUMMARY:

The Office of Personnel Management is issuing a final rule to redefine the geographic boundaries of the Central North Carolina Federal Wage System (FWS) appropriated fund wage area. The final rule removes Edgecombe and Wilson Counties, NC, from the survey area and adds Hoke County, NC, to the survey area. The redefinition of Edgecombe, Hoke, and Wilson Counties aligns the geographic definition of the Central North Carolina wage area more closely with the regulatory criteria used to define FWS wage areas.

This rule is effective on November 21, 2005.
