OSC Automatic Processing for Annual Salaried Employees For eligible employees who have not had a change in their Job Data records between January 1, 2000 and the effective date of the increase, OSC will automatically insert a row and apply a 3% salary increase (rounded to the nearest dollar). The calculation will be based on the employee’s December 31, 1999 salary. The row will be inserted after the agency payroll cut off date for each effective date for the periods listed above. The row will read PAY RT CHG/SAC(mass salary increase).
Hourly, Biweekly, Fee Employees Hourly, Biweekly and Fee employees will not be increased automatically.
Listings OSC will provide the following listings after the salary increases are processed:
A listing identifying employees paid automatically
A listing identifying the active employees who did not receive the automatic increase
 
Agency Instructions OSC requests that agencies not enter any position or pay rate change transactions for raise eligible employees during these periods, unless the effective date is less than the raise effective dates which are listed above.

For employees who have had a Job Data change effective January 1, 2000 or later, the agency must submit a transaction in the Job Action Request panel with an action of Pay Rate Change and a reason of CFS(Cor FY Sal). The effective date for the transaction should be based on the dates shown for each pay basis code. These transactions should be submitted AFTER the raise period for each pay basis code.

If an employee has more than one transaction after January 1, 2000, it is necessary for agencies to submit a transaction in the Job Action Request Panel to correct all subsequent rows.

To increase an employee with pay basis code HRY, BIW, or FEE, use the Job Action Request panel, the action code PAY RT CHG, and the reason code CRT(change rate). The effective date is based on the employee’s obligation.
