Start Preamble

AGENCY:

U.S. Office of Personnel Management.

ACTION:

Final rule.

SUMMARY:

The U.S. Office of Personnel Management is issuing a final rule to abolish the Santa Clara, California, nonappropriated fund (NAF) Federal Wage System (FWS) wage area and redefine Santa Clara County, CA, to the Monterey, CA, NAF wage area and Alameda, Contra Costa, and San Francisco Counties, CA, to the Solano, CA, NAF wage area. San Mateo County, CA, will no longer be defined to a wage area. These changes are necessary because the closure of the Moffett Federal Airfield Navy Exchange left the Santa Clara wage area without an activity having the capability to conduct a local wage survey.

DATES:

Effective date: This regulation is effective on March 9, 2009. Applicability date: This regulation applies on the first day of the first applicable pay period beginning on or after November 15, 2008.
