Salary Offset


A type of administrative cost or compensation set aside to balance the cost of a claim. As amended by section 31001(d)(2)(B) of the DCIA, 31 U.S.C. 3716, is applicable to the offset of all Federal payments even if another statute provides for using offset to collect a particular type of debt [31 U.S.C. 3716(e)]. Thus, the provisions of 31 U.S.C. 3716 apply to salary offset even though procedures governing the offset of a Federal employee’s salary are provided for in 5 U.S.C. 5514. The requirement to provide a Federal employee with notice and an opportunity to dispute the debt are contained in 5 U.S.C. 5514 and implementing regulations.
