Frequently Asked Questions Senior Executive Service

Does the pay freeze preclude a pay increase for an SES member detailed to another position with a substantially higher level of responsibility?

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