Special Pay only for hard to fill occupations

For Agencies that have special permissions to pay higher salaries above the GS schedule and have created special pay scales or bands they should be using those special pays only for those occupations that are hard to fill not standard positions. In some cases a regular specialist working in a non-GS system equivalent to a GS-11 level are paid higher than GS-15 for the same work.
