Frequently Asked Questions Senior Executive Service

How does the pay freeze affect pay increases normally granted to SL/ST employees based upon results of a recently completed performance appraisal cycle?

Such pay increases are precluded by the pay freeze. Under section 147(c) of the Continuing Appropriations and Surface Transportation Act, basic pay adjustments that would otherwise be granted by an authorized agency official based upon performance during the most recently completed appraisal period are restricted because this basis does not meet the criteria in that section for the exception to the pay freeze.
