No GS 13 pay for dept heads at USP's.

Currently, dept heads at US Penitentiaries receive GS 13 pay just for workin there. No other reason. It was originally an incentive to get people to work at a USP. Dept heads perfom no different task at a USP than an FCI or Low. So why are we paying them extra. We have 11 staff who receive this bonus at our institution, which averages about $ 12k per year each. This is a true waste of funds. Dept heads at USP's actually do LESS than the other institutions, as they have more staff available to delegate to.
