H.21 CONSULTANTS A. Consultant(s) hired to perform under this contract may be compensated at a rate for time actually worked or at a fixed price for performance of a specific task, or at nominal compensation in accordance with the contractor's policies. Written approval from the Contracting Officer must be obtained before a consultant is hired, regardless of contract type (hourly or fixed price). B. The amount or rate of payment shall be determined on a case-by-case basis taking into account the level and difficulty of the work to be performed, the qualifications of the expert or consultant, the pay rates of comparable individuals performing similar work in Federal or non-Federal sectors, and the availability of qualified candidates. In no event shall a consultant's allowable rate for any one day exceed the daily equivalent of the highest rate payable under the General Schedule or, if warranted, the highest rate under the Senior Level pay schedule.

Current General Schedule pay rates may be found on the Office of Personnel Management website at http://www.opm.gov/oca/08tables/indexGS.asp. The same method shall be used to determine the daily rate for consultants hired under the Senior Level pay schedule.

The daily rate is exclusive of travel and per diem cost which may be added to the allowable consultant's rate.
