Additional Information


The 1978 survey results for the Private Housing allowance categories are contained in FPM
Letter 591-29 for Hawaii and in FPM Letter 591-30 for the Virgin Islands. The cost data
provided by agencies on Federal housing units in Hawaii and the Virgin Islands were not
considered adequate for review purposes. Accordingly, a supplementary survey was undertaken.
This FPM Letter announces the results of the supplementary survey.

Effective Date.of Allowance Rate Adjustments

The effective date of the adjustments as shown in the attachment is the first pay period
that begins on or after February 25,1979.

General Information

Agencies are requested to inform employees in the pertinent areas of the actions approved
concerning, the cost of living allowance program. When doing so they should advise employees
that the allowance rates are subject to change, up or down, after each review. It is also
important that they understand that the law does not provide for an allowance to compensate
for increases in the cost of living, as such. Rather, the law provides for an allowance to
compensate for the differences in living costs between Washington, D.C., and the nonforeign
areas when living costs are substantially higher than in Washington, D.C.

Cost of living allowances authorized for nonforeign areas are payable in accordance with part
591 of the regulations of the Office of Personnel Management.

determined by the appropriate military department. If an employee is
furnished commissary/exchange privileges for reasons associated with his
or her Federal civilian employment, he or she will have an identification
card that authorizes access to the facilities. Possession of such an
identification card i.e., one issued by reason of his or her Federal
civilian employment, is sufficient evidence that the employee uses the
facilities. Similarly, the fact th t an employee who has been authorized
to occupy a Federally owned or leased housing unit as a condition of his
or her Federal civilian employment actually occupies the unit is evidence
that the unit is "used".

Agencies should adopt whatever methods are appropriate to obtain ftom
employees the information needed to determine the applicable allowance
category.
