* Rate limited to the rate for level IV of the Executive Schedule (5 U.S.C. 5304 (g)(1)).

NOTE: Locality rates for “law enforcement officers” (LEOs) (as defined in 5 U.S.C. 5541(3) and 5 CFR 550.103) are computed using special base rates for LEOs at grades 3 through 10, as authorized by section 403 of the Federal Employees Pay Comparability Act of 1990, as amended. Also, the LEO special base rate for GS-10, step 1, is used in computing the title 5 overtime hourly rate cap under 5 U.S.C. 5542 and 5 CFR 550.113 for all FLSA-exempt LEOs regardless of GS grade level.
