Tuesday, May 30, 2017
CPM 2017-06

On December 27, 2016, Compensation Policy Memorandum (CPM) 2016-22 notified you that Division E of the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2016 (the Fiscal Year (FY) 2016 Act), contains two provisions that affect the determination of pay adjustments for certain prevailing rate (wage) employees and that the Further Continuing and Security Assistance Appropriations Act, 2017 (the FY 2017 Act), extends into FY 2017 the two provisions of the FY 2016 Act.

This new memorandum is to notify you that Division E of the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2017 (the new FY 2017 Act) supersedes the previous FY 2017 Act.  The new FY 2017 Act continues the pay limitation provisions of section 737(a) and the floor pay adjustments required by section 737(b) with no changes.

New wage schedules will make reference to this new memorandum.
