NOAA ACQUISITION AND GRANTS OFFICE OMBUDSMAN (OCT 2016)
a. The NOAA Acquisition and Grants Office (AGO) Ombudsman is available to organizations to promote responsible and meaningful exchanges of information. Generally, the purpose of these exchanges will be to:1. Allow contractors to better prepare for and propose on business opportunities.2. Advise as to technologies and solutions within the marketplace that the Government may not be aware of, or is not fully benefiting from.3. Identify constraints in transparency and process.b. The AGO Ombudsman will objectively, reasonably, and responsibly collaborate with parties and recommend fair, impartial, and constructive solutions to the matters presented to him/her. Further, the AGO Ombudsman will maintain the reasonable and responsible confidentiality of the source of a concern, when such a request has been formally made by an authorized officer of an organization seeking to do business with, or already doing business with NOAA.c. Before consulting with the AGO Ombudsman, interested parties must first address their concerns, issues, disagreements, and/or recommendations with the respective contracting officer for resolution. However, direct access to the AGO Ombudsman may be sought when an interested party questions the objectivity or equity of a contracting officer's decision, or when there is a bona fide reason to believe that reasonable, responsible, and objective consideration will not be received from an assigned contracting officer.d. There are several constraints to the scope of the AGO Ombudsman's authority, for instance:1. Consulting with the AGO Ombudsman does not alter or postpone the timelines of any formal process (e.g., protests, claims, debriefings, employee employer actions, activities involving A-76 competition performance decisions, judicial or congressional hearings, or proposal, amendment, modification or deliverable due dates, etc.).2. The AGO Ombudsman cannot participate in the evaluation of proposals, source selection processes, or the adjudication of protests or formal contract disputes.3. The AGO Ombudsman is not authorized to generate or alter laws, judicial decisions, rules, policies, or formal guidance.4. The AGO Ombudsman is not authorized to develop or alter opportunity announcements, solicitations, contracts, or their terms or conditions.5. The AGO Ombudsman cannot overrule the authorized decisions or determinations of the contracting officer.6. The AGO Ombudsman has no authority to render a decision that binds AGO, NOAA, the Department of Commerce, or the U.S. Government.7. The AGO Ombudsman is not NOAA's agent relative to the service of magistrate or judicial process and cannot be used to extend service of process to another party (whether federal, public, or a private entity).e. After review and analysis of a filed concern or recommendation, the AGO Ombudsman may refer the interested party to another more suitable federal official for consideration. Moreover, concerns, disagreements, and/or recommendations that cannot be resolved by the AGO Ombudsman will need to be pursued through more formal venues.f. The AGO Ombudsman is not to be contacted to request copies of forms and/or documents under the purview of a contracting officer. Such documents include Requests for Information, solicitations, amendments, contracts, modifications, or conference materials.g. Questions regarding this solicitation and contract language shall be directed to Rafael Roman, NOAA AGO Ombudsman, at Rafael.Roman@noaa.gov.

THE OCCUPATIONS WHICH HAVE NUMBERED FOOTNOTES IN PARENTHESES RECEIVE THE FOLLOWING:
1) COMPUTER EMPLOYEES: Under the SCA at section 8(b), this wage determination doesnot apply to any employee who individually qualifies as a bona fide executive,administrative, or professional employee as defined in 29 C.F.R. Part 541. Becausemost Computer System Analysts and Computer Programmers who are compensated at a ratenot less than $27.63 (or on a salary or fee basis at a rate not less than $455 perweek) an hour would likely qualify as exempt computer professionals, (29 C.F.R. 541.400) wage rates may not be listed on this wage determination for all occupationswithin those job families. In addition, because this wage determination may notlist a wage rate for some or all occupations within those job families if the surveydata indicates that the prevailing wage rate for the occupation equals or exceeds$27.63 per hour conformances may be necessary for certain nonexempt employees. Forexample, if an individual employee is nonexempt but nevertheless performs dutieswithin the scope of one of the Computer Systems Analyst or Computer Programmeroccupations for which this wage determination does not specify an SCA wage rate,then the wage rate for that employee must be conformed in accordance with theconformance procedures described in the conformance note included on this wagedetermination.
Additionally, because job titles vary widely and change quickly in the computerindustry, job titles are not determinative of the application of the computerprofessional exemption. Therefore, the exemption applies only to computer employeeswho satisfy the compensation requirements and whose primary duty consists of:(1) The application of systems analysis techniques and procedures, includingconsulting with users, to determine hardware, software or system functionalspecifications;(2) The design, development, documentation, analysis, creation, testing ormodification of computer systems or programs, including prototypes, based on andrelated to user or system design specifications;(3) The design, documentation, testing, creation or modification of computerprograms related to machine operating systems; or(4) A combination of the aforementioned duties, the performance of whichrequires the same level of skills. (29 C.F.R. 541.400).
2) AIR TRAFFIC CONTROLLERS AND WEATHER OBSERVERS - NIGHT PAY & SUNDAY PAY: If youwork at night as part of a regular tour of duty, you will earn a night differentialand receive an additional 10% of basic pay for any hours worked between 6pm and 6am.If you are a full-time employed (40 hours a week) and Sunday is part of yourregularly scheduled workweek, you are paid at your rate of basic pay plus a Sundaypremium of 25% of your basic rate for each hour of Sunday work which is not overtime(i.e. occasional work on Sunday outside the normal tour of duty is consideredovertime work).
** HAZARDOUS PAY DIFFERENTIAL **
An 8 percent differential is applicable to employees employed in a position thatrepresents a high degree of hazard when working with or in close proximity toordnance, explosives, and incendiary materials. This includes work such asscreening, blending, dying, mixing, and pressing of sensitive ordnance, explosives,and pyrotechnic compositions such as lead azide, black powder and photoflash powder.All dry-house activities involving propellants or explosives. Demilitarization,modification, renovation, demolition, and maintenance operations on sensitiveordnance, explosives and incendiary materials. All operations involving re-gradingand cleaning of artillery ranges.
A 4 percent differential is applicable to employees employed in a position thatrepresents a low degree of hazard when working with, or in close proximity toordnance, (or employees possibly adjacent to) explosives and incendiary materialswhich involves potential injury such as laceration of hands, face, or arms of theemployee engaged in the operation, irritation of the skin, minor burns and the like;minimal damage to immediate or adjacent work area or equipment being used. Alloperations involving, unloading, storage, and hauling of ordnance, explosive, andincendiary ordnance material other than small arms ammunition. These differentialsare only applicable to work that has been specifically designated by the agency forordnance, explosives, and incendiary material differential pay.
** UNIFORM ALLOWANCE **
If employees are required to wear uniforms in the performance of this contract(either by the terms of the Government contract, by the employer, by the state orlocal law, etc.), the cost of furnishing such uniforms and maintaining (bylaundering or dry cleaning) such uniforms is an expense that may not be borne by anemployee where such cost reduces the hourly rate below that required by the wagedetermination. The Department of Labor will accept payment in accordance with thefollowing standards as compliance:
The contractor or subcontractor is required to furnish all employees with anadequate number of uniforms without cost or to reimburse employees for the actualcost of the uniforms. In addition, where uniform cleaning and maintenance is madethe responsibility of the employee, all contractors and subcontractors subject tothis wage determination shall (in the absence of a bona fide collective bargainingagreement providing for a different amount, or the furnishing of contraryaffirmative proof as to the actual cost), reimburse all employees for such cleaningand maintenance at a rate of $3.35 per week (or $.67 cents per day). However, inthose instances where the uniforms furnished are made of "wash and wear"materials, may be routinely washed and dried with other personal garments, and donot require any special treatment such as dry cleaning, daily washing, or commerciallaundering in order to meet the cleanliness or appearance standards set by the termsof the Government contract, by the contractor, by law, or by the nature of the work,there is no requirement that employees be reimbursed for uniform maintenance costs.
** SERVICE CONTRACT ACT DIRECTORY OF OCCUPATIONS **
The duties of employees under job titles listed are those described in the"Service Contract Act Directory of Occupations", Fifth Edition (Revision 1),dated September 2015, unless otherwise indicated.
REQUEST FOR AUTHORIZATION OF ADDITIONAL CLASSIFICATION AND WAGE RATEStandard Form 1444 (SF-1444)
The contracting officer shall require that any class of service employee which isnot listed herein and which is to be employed under the contract (i.e., the work tobe performed is not performed by any classification listed in the wagedetermination), be classified by the contractor so as to provide a reasonablerelationship (i.e., appropriate level of skill comparison) between such unlistedclassifications and the classifications listed in the wage determination. Suchconformed classes of employees shall be paid the monetary wages and furnished thefringe benefits as are determined (See 29 CFR 4.6(b)(2)(i)). Such conformingprocedures shall be initiated by the contractor prior to the performance of contractwork by such unlisted class(es) of employees (See 29 CFR 4.6(b)(2)(ii)). The Wageand Hour Division shall make a final determination of conformed classification, wagerate, and/or fringe benefits which shall be retroactive to the commencement date ofthe contract (See 29 CFR 4.6(b)(2)(iv)(C)(vi)). When multiple wage determinationsare included in a contract, a separate SF-1444 should be prepared for each wagedetermination to which a class(es) is to be conformed.
The process for preparing a conformance request is as follows:
1) When preparing the bid, the contractor identifies the need for a conformedoccupation(s) and computes a proposed rate(s).
2) After contract award, the contractor prepares a written report listing in orderthe proposed classification title(s), a Federal grade equivalency (FGE) for eachproposed classification(s), job description(s), and rationale for proposed wagerate(s), including information regarding the agreement or disagreement of theauthorized representative of the employees involved, or where there is no authorizedrepresentative, the employees themselves. This report should be submitted to thecontracting officer no later than 30 days after such unlisted class(es) of employeesperforms any contract work.
3) The contracting officer reviews the proposed action and promptly submits a reportof the action, together with the agency's recommendations and pertinentinformation including the position of the contractor and the employees, to the Wageand Hour Division, U.S. Department of Labor, for review (See 29 CFR 4.6(b)(2)(ii)).
4) Within 30 days of receipt, the Wage and Hour Division approves, modifies, ordisapproves the action via transmittal to the agency contracting officer, ornotifies the contracting officer that additional time will be required to processthe request.
5) The contracting officer transmits the Wage and Hour decision to the contractor.
6) The contractor informs the affected employees.
Information required by the Regulations must be submitted on SF-1444 or bond paper.
When preparing a conformance request, the "Service Contract Act Directory ofOccupations" (the Directory) should be used to compare job definitions to ensurethat duties requested are not performed by a classification already listed in thewage determination. Remember, it is not the job title, but the required tasks thatdetermine whether a class is included in an established wage determination.Conformances may not be used to artificially split, combine, or subdivideclassifications listed in the wage determination.
