(a) The lead agency shall establish and issue special wage schedules for U.S. civil service
wage employees in certain U.S. insular areas. The Department of Defense is the lead agency for American Samoa, the Commonwealth
of the Northern Mariana Islands, Guam, Midway, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. These schedules shall provide rates of pay for nonsupervisory, leader, supervisory,
and production facilitating employees.
(b) Special schedules shall be established at the same time and with rates identical
to the foreign area appropriated fund wage schedules established under § 532.255 of this subpart.
(c) Wage employees recruited from outside the insular area where employed, who meet the
same eligibility requirements as those specified for General Schedule employees in
§ 591.209 of subpart B of part 591, are also paid as a part of basic pay a differential
for recruitment and retention purposes. The differential rate shall be that established for General Schedule employees in
appendix B of subpart B of part 591 and shall be adjusted effective concurrently with
the special schedules.
