The National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2006 (P.L. 109-163, section 1105) provides authority for the agency head to waive the annual limitation, up to $200,000, established in 5 U.S.C. 5547(a), on the aggregate of basic pay and premium pay, payable in Calendar Year 2006. On July 21, 2006, Ambassador Tobias authorized a waiver of the limitation, up to $200,000, on the aggregate of basic pay and premium pay payable in Calendar Year 2006 for all our eligible USAID employees working in Iraq and Afghanistan. This action is taken in recognition of the substantial contributions USAID employees make in these countries, under very difficult circumstances.
