Top career officials are being asked to give up their pay raises in a move some suspect is part of President Obama’s two-year governmentwide pay freeze.

“We’ve heard from members that it’s happening,” said Bill Bransford, general counsel at the Senior Executives Association. “We have not officially heard from anyone and don’t know the specific facts.”

Federal News Radio reported Friday morning that as of Sunday, the government is revoking the December 2010 performance-based pay raises of hundreds of senior executives. The story said the Energy Department had informed its senior executives of the move at the direction of the Office of Personnel Management. Other agencies are expected to do the same, the report added.

But an Energy official said the department was “still reviewing whether it will ask senior executives to give back money received as part of the pay increase.” The official said OPM directed Energy on March 18 to take action to “roll back the pay adjustments.”
