Rates of Basic Pay for Members of the Senior Executive Service (SES)
Note: The freeze on the payable pay rates for certain senior political officials at 2013 levels continues into calendar year 2017. Section 101 of the Further Continuing and Security Assistance Appropriations Act, 2017 (Public Law 114-254, December 10, 2016), provides continuing appropriations to Federal agencies through April 28, 2017, or the date of enactment of specified appropriations legislation. Under this continuing resolution, the authority and conditions provided in FY 2016 appropriations laws (including section 738 of title VII of division E of the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2016, Public Law 114-113, December 18, 2015) continue to apply. However, the officially established and posted pay rates (or pay ranges) for 2017 are in effect and used for determining pay for other employees. See CPM 2016-20 and https://www.chcoc.gov/content/2014-pay-freeze-certain-senior-political-officials for more information.
