Notes:

Except for code 00 (not applicable), the grade/level/ class/rank/pay band name for a numeric code is the same as that of the code. Thus grade/level/class/rank/pay band 1 has a code of 01, grade/level/class/rank/pay band 2 has a code of 02, and so forth. Note that Arabic numbers are used for the code even though a name may use Roman numerals. Thus level I has a code of 01, level II has a code of 02, and so forth.

Note that, although most grade/level/class/rank/pay band codes are numeric, some are alphanumeric. The grade/level/class/rank/pay band name for an alphanumeric code is dependent on the pay plan to which it belongs. Along with numeric code 00, following is a list of the alphanumeric codes used by more than one agency, and the pay plans to which the codes belong.
