POST CLASSIFICATION AND PAYMENT TABLES SECTION 920

FOOTNOTES TO SECTION 920

(Explanations on how to use the post classification and payment tables are included in Section 920 of these regulations)

 

a – effective November 2, 2003

b – effective November 16, 2003

 

c – Changes were effective on both of the above dates.  The allowance or other revision printed in this Section 920 was effective November 16, 2003.  The  changes effective November 2, 2003 are listed at the end of these footnotes.

 

d - No current cost information is available as all U.S. Government employees are in Government owned or leased housing.  Any US Government organization

     with employees eligible for the LQA should submit housing cost information to the Department of State as required by Section 072 and 077 of these

     regulations.  Until more suitable housing cost information can be used to establish LQA rates for the locality, effective 3/09/03 the following LQA rates are authorized:

WF

13300

12100

WOF

9700

 

e -The LQA rates are established for the benefit of only a few or no current employees and therefore do not necessarily represent overall local quarter

     costs.  (See Sections 072 and 077 for information on the reporting of housing cost data.)

 

g - The following are within the Tokyo-To (Kanagawa-Ken) area:  Atsugi, Camp Zama, Fussa, Machida-Shi, Sagamihara, Tachikawa and Yokota AB.

 

h - When payment is made directly to a DOD school rather than as an education allowance to the employee, such payment must be considered to be in lieu of

     the education allowance.  Thus, an employee whose child changes schools (DOD school, local school, U.S. school) during a school year, must deduct any

     payment made, or to be made, directly to the DOD school on the child's behalf from these rates.  An employee cannot be granted or have paid on his/her

     child's behalf, an amount greater than the rates published for any one school year.

 

m - The 'away from post' rate of $33,650 is for use only in attending schools located outside of South Africa.  The school 'at post' rate may be used in

      attending day or boarding schools in South Africa.

 

n - An employee who serves for a period of 42 consecutive calendar days or more on detail (Section 511c) in Afghanistan (effective 12/16/01) or Iraq (effective 

     3/23/03),  may be granted the post differential at the prescribed rate for the number of days served, beginning with the first day of detail.

 

p - In addition to the listed post differential rate, employees are eligible for danger pay allowance, DSSR (652f), as shown below:
