This transmittal forwards the attached Delegation of Authority (D/A) to Approve Premium Pay (Personnel #21).  The authorities are delegated to the DHO, Director, Office of Management Support, Director, Office of Public Health, and Area Directors.

The authority to Approve Premium Pay combines similar subject matter, and provides authorization to officials to administer the provisions for overtime payment.  This authority supersedes the original Delegation of Authority to Approve Overtime, Personnel #21, in support of HHS administrative initiatives calling for more streamlined rules and greater delegation of authority.
