White House Budget Proposal Includes Contractor Pay Cap Language

CheckbookThe White House’s proposed budget for fiscal year 2014 includes a request to Congress to set a $230,700 limit on the amount defense and civilian contractors can have employee salaries reimbursed from taxpayers.

Previously, the Senate proposed the cap for defense contractors only but the White House believes lawmakers should extend that cap to cover all contractor employees, GovExec reports.

Agencies could receive an exception to go over the cap if they require continued access to skills of specialists that help achieve mission outcomes, the White House budget request says.

Charles S. Clark writes contractors can reimburse up to $763,000 in pay and benefits for each of their top five executives.
