Figure 1-Compensation Schedule for Excepted Service
The Committee is aware of two individuals in the Excepted Service whose salariesexceed the Council-approved cap.
Subordinate agency heads are classified as Executive Service employees.
Likemembers of the ExceptedService, employees in the Executive Service “serve at thepleasure of the Mayor.”
Also like the Excepted Service, the compensation schedule forExecutive Service employees is subject to Council review. In 2007, the Council approvedemergency and temporary legislation
intended to create two additional pay levels and toallow incumbents to receive salaries greater than the maximum.
The legislation haslapsed, however, and the operative compensation schedule for non-incumbents reverted
to that approved in 2006 set forth in Figure 2,
with a maximum salary of $179,096.
The two employees are Warren Graves (Chief of Staff, Office of City Administrator) and Gerri MasonHall (Chief of Staff, Executive Office of the Mayor).
D.C. Official Code § 1-610.51(b).
