MEMORANDUM FOR SEE DISTRIBUTION

SUBJECT: Pay Setting Rules for Nonappropriated Fund (NAF) Child and Youth (CY) Employees Leaving a Non-Foreign Area



  1. References:
    1. Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2010 (Public Law 111-84, 28 October 2009).
    2. DAPE-CPZ memorandum, 14 January 2010, Subject Nonappropriated Fund (NAF) General Pay Increases (GPI) and Non-Foreign Area Cost of Living Allowances (COLA) Changes.
    3. Army Regulation (AR) 215-3, NAF Personnel Policy, dated 29 August 2003.
  2. This memorandum establishes pay setting guidance for those CY employees who move from the states of Alaska and Hawaii, the territory of Guam, and the Commonwealths of Puerto Rico, and the Northern Mariana Islands and are subsequently employed outside a Non-Foreign area,
  3. Reference 1 ,b, provides guidelines on the 2010 Non-Foreign Area COLA and the new adjusted rates. Consistent with prOVisions of reference 1 ,a, eligible NAF employees, including those in the CY pay level, were provided a 4,72% NAF Locality Supplement to offset the impact of the reduced Non-Foreign Area COLA rates,
  4. In accordance with reference 1 ,c., paragraph 3-20.c., when CY employees are reemployed, reinstated, or transferred their rate of pay is set at the level at least equivalent to their most recent CY level. However, as an exception to AR 215-3, paragraph 3-20,c" the following guidance applies. When a CY employee leaves one of the Non-Foreign Area wage areas as defined above and is subsequently employed in an area other than the Non-Foreign area, Garrison Commanders may uniformly set CY pay, reducing the dollar amount of the NAF Locality Supplement.
  5. The reduction shall not affect the dollar amount of previous or subsequent general pay increases, or performance based increases a CY employee may have previously received or will receive in the future.
  6. If the salary of the CY employee moving from the Non-Foreign Area is competitive with CY employees with similar experience, training, and tenure in the new area, the rate of pay should not be reduced. The salary rate decision must be provided to the individual upon offer of employment.
  7. This change will be reflected in the updated AR 215-3. My point of contact is Ms. Rena Gwyn, rena.gwyn@us.army.mil, (703) 325-7763, DSN 221-7763.
