Under section 5341 of title 5, United States Code, the pay of Federal trade, craft, and laboring employees is to be maintained in line with prevailing private sector levels for comparable work within a local wage area. The pay system for these employees is known as the Federal Wage System (FWS). The pay of FWS employees is fixed and adjusted on an annual basis. The U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) has designated the Department of Defense (DOD) as the lead agency which sponsors and conducts annual wage surveys in numerous geographic areas to determine local prevailing rates and set pay for FWS employees. FWS wage surveys are conducted by DOD under regulatory guidelines established by OPM in part 532 of title 5, Code of Federal Regulations. The forms developed by OPM for FWS wage surveys are the Establishment Information Form, the Wage Data Collection Form, and the Wage Data Collection Continuation Form. The information collected on these forms enables DOD to establish the rates of pay for FWS employees based on prevailing rates of pay in the private sector for similar levels of work. OPM developed the data elements to be collected by DOD. DOD is authorized to vary the layout of the forms if necessary to meet its needs. The forms are printed by DOD. The forms are used as interview guidelines by Federal employees who collect data necessary to determine local prevailing rates. Federal employees complete the forms rather than private sector establishment officials.
