H.R. 5005, as passed, includes a provision at Section 761, which would provide flexibility to the Secretary of Homeland Security and the Director of the Office of Personnel Management to establish, and from time to time adjust, a human resources management (HRM) system for some or all of the organizational units of the new department. The provision has generated considerable discussion, which has centered on the need for personnel flexibility at the department and concerns about preserving the civil service standards of merit-based hiring and preference in hiring for veterans, among other issues. If Section 761 (or a similar provision) were enacted, issues of staffing requirements and the hiring and pay systems at the new department would likely be debated. If the provision were not included in the legislation enacted, Congress could designate specific funds for the new department for personnel flexibilities and direct the department to use fully the current Title 5 United States Code personnel flexibility authorities available to executive branch agencies in lieu of granting authority for a new HRM system. H.R. 5710, Homeland Security Act of 2002, was introduced in the House of Representatives by Representative Armey on November 12, 2002. As passed by the House, H.R. 5710 includes provisions on human resources management at Section 841. These are the same provisions that are at Section 761 of H.R. 5005, as passed by the House, except for three differences. The House-passed H.R. 5710 also includes new provisions on federal workforce management at Title XIII

Federal white-collar pay : FY2006 and FY2007 salary adjustments by Barbara L Schwemle( Book )

7 editions published between 2004 and 2008 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Federal white-collar employees are intended by law to receive an annual pay adjustment and a locality-based comparability payment, effective in January of each year, under Section 529 of P.L. 101-509, the Federal Employees Pay Comparability Act (FEPCA) of 1990. The law has never been implemented as originally enacted; annual and locality payments pursuant to the statute have been reduced each year. Although the annual adjustment and the locality payment are sometimes referred to as cost-of-living adjustments, neither is based on changes in the cost of living. The annual pay adjustment is based on the Employment Cost Index (ECI), which measures changes in private-sector wages and salaries. The size of the locality payment is determined by the President and is based on a comparison of non-federal and General Schedule (GS) salaries in 32 pay areas nationwide. (The GS is the pay schedule that covers white-collar employees under the Civil Service.) By law, the disparity between non-federal and federal salaries was to be gradually reduced to 5% during the years 1994 to 2002. Continuing in each year thereafter, FEPCA requires that amounts payable may not be less than the full amounts necessary to reduce the pay disparity to 5%. For the January 2009 pay adjustment, the ECI shows that the annual across-the-board increase would be 2.9%. The Federal Salary Council and the Pay Agent recommend that, to carry out FEPCA, the 2009 locality payments range from 23.40% in the "Rest of the United States" (RUS) pay area to 59.65% in the San Jose-San Francisco pay area, and be 53.94% in the Washington, DC, pay area. Because the new locality rates replace the existing locality rates, the rate change is derived by comparing 2008 locality payments with those recommended for 2009. This comparison results in recommended net increases for 2009, if the ECI and locality-based comparability payments were granted as required by law, of 12.19% in the RUS pay area, 23.96% in the San Jose-San Francisco pay area, and 31.03% in the Washington, DC, pay area. The nationwide average net pay increase, if the ECI and locality-based comparability payments were granted as required by law, would be 19.24% in 2009. The Pay Agent stated that it would be unwise for the recommended locality payments to take effect because of the "current national emergency." The President's FY2009 budget proposed a 2.9% federal civilian pay adjustment. This report will be updated as events dictate
DOD's national security personnel system : provisions of law and implementation plans( Book )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Title XI of the National Defense Authorization Act for FY2004, P.L. 108-136, includes provisions on a National Security Personnel System (NSPS) for the Department of Defense (DOD) and provisions on personnel management that are applicable government-wide. The law was enacted on November 24, 2003. Title XI, Subtitle A, of the law authorizes the Secretary of Defense and the Director of the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) to establish a new human resources management (HRM) system for DOD's civilian employees and to jointly prescribe regulations for the system. The Secretary and the Director are authorized to establish and adjust a labor relations system and are required to provide a written description of the proposed personnel system or any adjustments to such system to the labor organizations representing DOD employees. A collaboration procedure must be followed by the Secretary, Director, and employee representatives. The Secretary is authorized to engage in any collaboration activities and collective bargaining at an organizational level above the level of exclusive recognition. The Secretary also is authorized to establish an appeals process that provides fair treatment for DOD employees covered by the NSPS. Regulations applicable to employee misconduct or performance that fails to meet expectations may not be prescribed until after the Secretary consults with the Merit Systems Protections Board (MSPB) and must afford due process protections and conform to public employment principles of merit and fitness at 5 U.S.C. 3201. A qualifying employee subject to some severe disciplinary actions may petition the MSPB for review of the department's decision. The board could dismiss any petition that does not raise a substantial question of fact or law and order corrective action only if the board finds that the department's personnel decision did not meet some prescribed standards
