Federal Prevailing Rate Advisory Committee; Open Committee 
Meetings

    According to the provisions of section 10 of the Federal Advisory 
Committee Act (Pub. L. 92-463), notice is hereby given that meetings of 
the Federal Prevailing Rate Advisory Committee will be held on--
    Thursday, February 12, 2009.
    Thursday, March 19, 2009.

    The meetings will start at 10 a.m. and will be held in Room 5A06A, 
U.S. Office of Personnel Management Building, 1900 E Street, NW., 
Washington, DC.
    The Federal Prevailing Rate Advisory Committee is composed of a 
Chair, five representatives from labor unions holding exclusive 
bargaining rights for Federal blue-collar employees, and five 
representatives from Federal agencies. Entitlement to membership on the 
Committee is provided for in 5 U.S.C. 5347.
    The Committee's primary responsibility is to review the Prevailing 
Rate System and other matters pertinent to establishing prevailing 
rates under subchapter IV, chapter 53, 5 U.S.C., as amended, and from 
time to time advise the U.S. Office of Personnel Management.
    These scheduled meetings will start in open session with both labor 
and management representatives attending. During the meetings either 
the labor members or the management members may caucus separately with the Chair to devise strategy and formulate 
positions. Premature disclosure of the matters discussed in these 
caucuses would unacceptably impair the ability of the Committee to 
reach a consensus on the matters being considered and would disrupt 
substantially the disposition of its business. Therefore, these 
caucuses will be closed to the public because of a determination made 
by the Director of the U.S. Office of Personnel Management under the 
provisions of section 10(d) of the Federal Advisory Committee Act (Pub. 
L. 92-463) and 5 U.S.C. 552b(c)(9)(B). These caucuses may, depending on 
the issues involved, constitute a substantial portion of a meeting.
    Annually, the Chair compiles a report of pay issues discussed and 
concluded recommendations. These reports are available to the public, 
upon written request to the Committee.
    The public is invited to submit material in writing to the Chair on 
Federal Wage System pay matters felt to be deserving of the Committee's 
attention. Additional information on these meetings may be obtained by 
contacting the Committee at U.S. Office of Personnel Management, 
Federal Prevailing Rate Advisory Committee, Room 5526, 1900 E Street, 
NW., Washington, DC 20415, (202) 606-2838.

    Dated: January 12, 2009.
Charles E. Brooks,
Chairman, Federal Prevailing Rate Advisory Committee.
