The U.S. Office of Personnel Management is issuing a final rule to abolish the Monmouth, New Jersey, nonappropriated fund (NAF) Federal Wage System (FWS) wage area and redefine Monmouth County, NJ, to the Burlington, NJ, NAF wage area. These changes are necessary because the closure of Fort Monmouth left the Monmouth wage area without an activity having the capability to conduct a local wage survey.
Effective date: This regulation is effective on February 27, 2012.

On August 25, 2011, the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) issued an interim rule (76 FR 53045) to abolish the Monmouth, New Jersey, nonappropriated fund (NAF) Federal Wage System (FWS) wage area and redefine Monmouth County, NJ, to the Burlington, NJ, NAF wage area. FWS employees remaining in the Monmouth wage area were transferred to the Burlington wage area schedule on the first day of the first applicable pay period beginning on or after October 15, 2011. The Federal Prevailing Rate Advisory Committee, the national labor-management committee responsible for advising OPM on matters concerning the pay of FWS employees, reviewed and recommended these changes by consensus. The interim rule had a 30-day comment period, during which OPM received no comments.
