Pay & Leave Pay Systems

The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) provides staff support for the Federal Salary Council and Presidents Pay Agent. OPM also provides leadership on pay systems for civilian Federal employees. We accomplish this by developing and maintaining Governmentwide regulations and policies on authorities such as General Schedule locality pay, the Federal Wage System, special rates, and pay for employees in Nonforeign areas. Ultimately, each Federal agency is responsible for complying with the law and regulations and following OPM's policies and guidance to administer pay policies and programs for its own employees.
