Casey, Director Central Intelligence Agency Washington, D. C. 20505 .The Committee briefly reviewed-your planned pay increase for overseas personnel during its recent CIA budget hearing, and I have extensively reviewed the various correspondence dealing with this matter that has flowed between your office and the various congressional committees concerned with CIA operations. Con- sidering the lack of authoritative data on pay comparability and other information that should be an essential part of a decision on compensation changes, the implementation of a 9.6 percent pay increase would appear to be premature. As I indicated at our budget hearing to Admiral Inman, a -thorough pay comparability study by the Office of Management and Budget should be conducted to ensure that your decision does not continue this "leapfrog" pattern that has developed in compensa- tion rates for federal personnel overseas. Meanwhile, any change in compensation approved under existing CIA authorities should be clearly labeled as temporary in nature or perhaps a bonus that would be subject to later revision based on findings of the pay comparability study. The Committee will also require the Agency's estimates on the full year cost of this pay raise for Fiscal Year 1.982 together with current plans for financing that cost. If the 1982 costs are to be absorbed in whole or in part, we will need details on what funds are being reprogrammed to accomplish this. We also need reprogramming data on the 1981 absorption. I trust in the future that decisions affecting spending will be discussed with the Committee well in advance of any commitments. ordi,fa11 TED STEVENS hairman Subcommittee or- Defense Approved For Release 2005/07/14: CIA-RDP92-00420R0001OO020O32=6 IT ppri 92-00420R000100020032-1 dTIAL SECRET EXECUTIVE SECRETARIAT Routing Slip or Release 2005/07/14: CIA- ACTION INFO DATE INITIAL 1 DCI 7 2 DDCI 3 D/DCI/RM 4 DD/NFA 5 D/DCI/CT 6 DD/A 7 DD/O 8 DD/S&T 9 GC 10 LC 11 IG 12 Compt 13 D/ PA 14 D/EEO 15 D/PPPM 16 AO/DCI 17 PB/NSC 8 r_ 19 20 21 22 Ip1y for A3iP l I s `s of # t *r' - 1:a .rd proved For Release 2005/07/14: CIA-RDP92-00420Rt?f~~I`i-V32z 14,t
