                    (E) shall not be a basis for payment, and shall not

                separation.

    (d) Additional Office of the Treasury Inspector General for Tax 
Administration Contributions to the Retirement Fund.--
            (1) In general.--In addition to any other payments which it 
        is required to make under subchapter III of chapter 83 or 
        chapter 84 of title 5, United States Code, the Office shall

        subchapter III of chapter 83 or chapter 84 of title 5, United 
        States Code, to whom a voluntary separation incentive has been 
        paid under this section.
            (2) Definition.--In paragraph (1), the term ``final basic 
        pay'', with respect to an employee, means the total amount of 
        basic pay which would be payable for a year of service by such 
        employee, computed using the employee's final rate of basic pay, 
        and, if last serving on other than a full-time basis, with 
        appropriate adjustment therefor.

    (e) Effect of Subsequent Employment With the Government.--An 
individual who has received a voluntary separation incentive payment 
under this section and accepts any employment for compensation with the

required to pay, prior

[[Page 113 STAT. 441]]

incentive payment to the Office.
    (f ) Effect on Office of the Treasury Inspector General for Tax 
Administration Employment Levels.--
            (1) Intended effect.--Voluntary separations under this 
        section are not intended to necessarily reduce the total number 
        of full-time equivalent positions in the Office.
            (2) Use of voluntary separations.--The Office may redeploy 
        or use the full-time equivalent positions vacated by voluntary 
        separations under this section to make other positions available 
        to more critical locations or more critical occupations.

of title 18, United States Code, without regard to the limitation on the 
rate of pay payable during a pay period contained in section 5547(c)(2) 
of title 5, United States Code, except that such premium pay shall not 
be payable to an employee to the extent that the aggregate of the 
employee's basic and premium pay for the year would otherwise exceed the 
annual equivalent of that limitation. The term premium pay refers to the 
provisions of law cited in the first sentence of section 5547(a) of 
title 5, United States Code.

        by the separation of any employee who has received, or is due to 
        receive, a voluntary separation incentive payment under this 
        Act. For the purposes of this subsection, positions shall be 
        counted on a full-time equivalent basis.

        Treasury, the Office of Management and Budget may waive the 
        reduction in total number of funded employee positions required

[[Page 113 STAT. 444]]

        by subsection (c) satisfactorily demonstrates that the positions 
        would better be used to reallocate occupations or reshape the 
        workforce and to produce a more cost-effective result.

        United States Postal Service, or the Postal Rate Commission, the 
        Director of the Office of Personnel Management may, at the 
        request of the head of the agency, waive the repayment if the 
        individual involved possesses unique abilities and is the only 
        qualified applicant available for the position.
            (B) If the employment under this subsection is with an

        ``employment'' with respect to paragraph (1), but shall be 
        excluded with respect to paragraph (2).

    (g) Contributions to the Retirement Fund.--
            (1) In addition to any other payments which it is required 
        to make under subchapter III of chapter 83 or chapter 84 of 
        title 5, United States Code, the General Services Administration 
        shall remit to the Office of Personnel Management for deposit in 
        the Treasury to the credit of the Civil Service Retirement and 
        Disability Fund an amount equal to 15 percent of the final 
        annual basic pay for each employee covered under subchapter III 
        of chapter 83 or chapter 84 of title 5, United States Code, to 
        whom a voluntary separation incentive has been paid under this 
        section.
            (2) For the purpose of paragraph (1), the term ``final basic 
        pay'' with respect to an employee, means the total amount of 
        basic pay which would be payable for a year of service by such 
        employee, computed using the employee's final rate of basic pay, 
        and, if last serving on other than a full-time basis, with 
        appropriate adjustment therefor.

        by the separation of any employee who has received, or is due to 
        receive, a voluntary separation incentive payment under this 
        section. For the purposes of this subsection positions shall be 
        counted on a full-time equivalent basis.
            (2) The Director of the Office of Management and Budget 
        shall monitor the agency and take any action necessary to ensure 
        that the requirement of this subsection is met.
            (3) At the request of the Administrator of General Services, 
        the Office of Management and Budget may waive the application of 
        paragraph (1) if he or she determines that the plan required by 
        subsection (c) satisfactorily demonstrates downsizing or other 
        restructuring within GSA that would produce a cost-effective 
        result.
