Q.  My high-3 years were actually during three past years in an excepted service position and will not likely be my last three years.  Will my actual past salary be used to calculate the high-3 or will  it be based on the current levels paid for that higher grade?

A.  Your high-3 will be based on the average of your highest three consecutive years of base pay, regardless of when they occur in your career.
