The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) maintains General Schedule (GS) & Locality Pay Tables and provides policy leadership and expertise on a variety of Government wide pay programs for Federal employees.
For more information please visit the OPM Pay & Leave Policies section, Salaries & Wages page.
The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) may establish higher rates of basic pay (special rates) for a group or category of General Schedule (GS) positions in one or more geographic areas to address existing or likely significant handicaps in recruiting or retaining well-qualified employees. OPM may establish special rates for nearly any category of employee - i.e., by series, specialty, grade-level, and/or geographic area. Special rates pertaining to FHWA Federal Lands positions will be clarified in the job announcements and any questions may be addressed by the contacts listed in the announcement.
