Federal Employees News Digest : Nov 11, 2013
Federal Benefits Q&A Question: "A 1 percent federal pay raise is proposed to take effect Jan. 1, 2014. Since Jan. 1 is in the middle of a pay period, will the pay raise, if approved, take effect the beginning of the first pay period after Jan. 1, 2014?" Answer: In the past, federal pay raises took effect on the first day of the new leave year. If there is going to be a 1 percent federal pay raise this January, the pay raise would take effect Jan. 12, 2014 (the first day of the 2014 leave year). Readers are encouraged to ask questions related to general employee benefits---such as CSRS, FERS, the Thrift Savings Plan, tax and estate planning, insurance, Social Security and Medicare---at the "Federal Benefits Q&A" at www.FederalSoup.com.

Cox suggested that one answer might be to bolster TSA's capabilities by assign- ing the agency law enforcement respon- sibilities as well as its current screening responsibilities at airport checkpoints. "At this time, we feel a larger and more consistent armed presence in screening areas would be a positive step in improving security for both TSOs and the flying pub- lic,” Cox said in a statement. “The develop- ment of a new class of TSA officers with law enforcement status would be a logical approach to accomplishing this goal." Cox said the union would work with the agency and Congress “to explore all proposals to make our airports safer." See more at: http://afge.org/Index.cfm?P age=PressReleases&PressReleaseID=1562. GSA announces car-sharing pilot The General Services Administration said it would explore the development of a government-wide car-sharing program similar to those operated commercially in the private-sector. GSA, which manages more than 200,000 vehicles, has issued a request for information to solicit ideas for a car- sharing project from commercial vendors. As part of the effort, GSA said it also will launch a pilot car-sharing program in four locations---Boston, New York City, Chicago and Washington, D.C.---to “immediately explore best practices and test how the government can effectively integrate low-cost alternative transporta- tion services" across multiple agencies in large metro areas. GSA said it will use both the RFI and the pilot program to assess and measure the effectiveness, cost savings and overall benefits of car-sharing among agencies. The agency said it expects the demand for car-sharing to increase amid growing budget constraints. See more details on the plan at: www. gsa.gov/portal/content/181043.
