MEMORANDUM FOR DIRECTORS OF PERSONNEL (CPM 97-8)
FROM: DONALD J. WINSTEAD
FOR COMPENSATION POLICY
SUBJECT: 1997 Annual Review of Special Salary Rates
Authorized Under 5 U.S.C. 5305
This memorandum provides agencies with the following:
Attachment 1. 1997 annual review instructions.
Attachment 2. Worksheet for Special Salary Rate Requests (OPM Form 1397, long and short form versions).
Attachment 3. Index of current special rate authorizations by agency.
Attachment 4. Special rate agency contacts.
The deadline for submitting all annual review materials to the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) is September 30, 1997. OPM will consider granting requests for a short extension of this deadline on a case-by-case basis. However, it is important that agencies make timely submissions so that there is adequate time to compile and review the data and to obtain a consensus among affected agencies in the event that there are substantial differences in agency requests.
We ask agency headquarters to bring any problems encountered in implementing the annual review process to our attention as they arise. You may contact the Compensation Administration Division with any questions you may have at (202) 606-2858, FAX: (202) 606-0824, or email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
