I would like to know how to qualify an applicant for a Secretary, GS-318 Grade-8 with a Military grade level FV-0318-D. This applicant is working for the Department of Transportation, Federal Aviation Administration. Can you tell us where to find pay tables for the grade mentioned above?

Thanks you

Hi Emma. Your posting made me curious, as I wasn't familiar with the FV pay band until you mentioned it. Obviously FV-0318-D is tied to several fed govt organizations, in this case FAA and Secretary (Office Automation) position, with pay scale D. I see the pay scales go from A to M, and in lieu of having "steps" as in the GS/GG schedules, these have Minimum, Midpoint, and Maximum levels. The positions also qualify for locality pay different for each city. I know the 2009 GS locality pay ranges from 13.86-34.35%, and it looks like it is similar for FAA. Anyhow, the D band pay scale is $25500, $31900, $38300 for the three "steps". GS-8 is $37075 for starters, and neither of these two figures include locality pay. For a better comparison, it would help to know the city and step, or level, where the FV and GS jobs are located. The GS pay scale URL below will automatically calculate the total pay for all the cities above the minimum locality pay.

A base GS-8 would be near equivalent to a FV level between F and G. A FV-D base would be near equivalent to GS-4 Step 3.

Hope this helps. Interesting lesson for me, so thanks for posting.
