Frequently Asked Questions Senior Executive Service

How does the pay freeze impact senior professionals who transfer to another senior professional position?

An agency head may grant a basic pay increase to a senior professional upon transfer from another agency only if the increase is based on a position change resulting in a substantial increase in responsibility, consistent with applicable statutory and regulatory requirements. The pay increase may be made within 12 months of the senior professional's last pay adjustment but would initiate a new 12-month waiting period, as provided in 5 CFR 534.503(c).
