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 define Tulsa County, Oklahoma, as an area of application to the Oklahoma, OK, nonappropriated fund (NAF) Federal Wage System (FWS) wage area and Angelina County, Texas, as an area of application to the Dallas, TX, NAF FWS wage area. These changes are necessary because there are NAF FWS employees working in Tulsa and Angelina Counties and the counties are not currently defined to NAF wage areas. In addition, this final rule correctly amends the Nationwide Schedule of Nonappropriated Fund Regular Wage Schedules by removing, under the State of California, “Santa Clara,” which was abolished as a NAF FWS wage area by a final rule published on March 9, 2009.

DATES:

This regulation is effective on March 24, 2011.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On August 3, 2010, the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) issued a proposed rule (75 FR 45557) to define Tulsa County, Oklahoma, as an area of application to the Oklahoma, OK, nonappropriated fund (NAF) Federal Wage System (FWS) wage area and Angelina County, Texas, as an area of application to the Dallas, TX, NAF FWS wage area. The Federal Prevailing Rate Advisory Committee, the national labor-management committee responsible for advising OPM on matters concerning the pay of FWS employees, recommended these changes by consensus. The proposed rule had a 30-day comment period during which OPM received no comments.

CFR Correction

In addition, this final rule corrects Appendix B to subpart B of part 532—Nationwide Schedule of Nonappropriated Fund Regular Wage Schedules by removing, under the State of California, “Santa Clara,” which was abolished as a NAF FWS wage area by a final rule (74 FR 9951) published on March 9, 2009.

Regulatory Flexibility Act

I certify that these regulations will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities because they will affect only Federal agencies and employees.
