Frequently Asked Questions Senior Executive Service

Does the pay freeze preclude a pay increase for a senior professional detailed to another position with a substantially higher level of responsibility?

Yes. For purposes of pay and benefits, a senior professional on detail continues to encumber the position from which he or she is detailed. Agencies may not grant a pay increase to a senior professional detailed to another position because no position change has occurred for purposes of pay and benefits. The same is true of a senior professional assigned to "act" in a position of substantially greater responsibility rather than reassigned to that position.
