Starting at the bottom, on the district office level, a FAASTeam manager is at the GS-14 level. A GS-14, Step 5 (halfway up the automatic pay raise ladder), with an average “locality pay” supplement, earns $124,000 per year. There are, you’ll remember, 110 of them. The 14 regional point of contact FAASTeamers are in the Core Compensation J level (a step up from GS grades), which also starts at $124,000. And the 13 national administrators and national FAASTeam managers are at a K level, where the salary starts at $150,000 — but is likely more.
