Your monthly starting salary will be $7,250.00, the equivalent of $87,000.00 if calculated annually.
Any future pay adjustments will be based upon your performance, the competitive market,

Retirement Benefits
The Employees Capital Accumulation Plan (ECAP) offers you an excellent opportunity to share in
the success of the firm and prepare for your financial future. ECAP is a tax-deferred, defined
contribution plan with two components: a profit sharing feature in which the firm makes a
contribution and a voluntary 401(k) feature.
Booz Allen typically makes an annual lump sum contribution to employees ECAP accounts. While
contributions are discretionary and subject to Board of Directors approval, the firm historically has
made annual contributions of at least 10 percent of employees eligible compensation (defined as
salary plus any bonuses).
In addition, the firm traditionally has contributed 5.7 percent of any eligible compensation in
excess of the FICA wage base for the plan year ($110,100 for 2012).
Employees become eligible to receive annual ECAP contributions on the first day of the month
following their one-year anniversary with Booz Allen. The firms initial contributions will be
prorated from the date through the remainder of the calendar year. Firm contributions typically
are deposited shortly after December 31 each year.
Firm contributions to your ECAP account are separate from the voluntary 401(k) portionyou will
receive an annual lump-sum deposit regardless of what you contribute to your 401(k). If your prior
employment terminated after you became a participant in ECAP, your eligibility date will be your
re-hire date, and your first contribution will be prorated from that date. In addition, if a portion of
your ECAP account was not vested at the time of your departure and you return to work before
you incur five one-year breaks in service, a special firm contribution will be made to reinstate the
forfeited amount. Prior years of service with the firm count towards your current vesting.
The voluntary employee-funded 401(k) portion allows you to make pre-tax contributions to a
401(k) account and after-tax contributions to a Roth 401(k) account via convenient payroll
deductions. The combined amount of these contributions cannot exceed maximum annual IRS
limit ($17,000 for 2012).
Your future annual 401(k) contributions may be limited to the lesser of 10 percent of your base
salary or the annual IRS contributions limit ($17,000 for 2012) if you are a highly compensated
employee (HCE) as defined by the IRS (i.e. for 2012, the plan defines an HCE as someone with
prior calendar year (2011) Booz Allen compensation of $110,000 or more).
If you do not actively enroll or decline participation in the 401(k) feature of ECAP within 60 days
from your hire date, you will be automatically enrolled in the 401(k) at a pre-tax contribution rate
of four percent of your eligible pay. During the first 60 days from your hire date, you may elect
your contribution rate or elect not to contribute. If you do not elect or decline within this time

period, your automatic contributions of four percent will begin to be withheld from your paycheck
following the end of the opt-out period. The four percent contribution rate will be deducted from
each pay period and invested in the LifePath Fund closest to your anticipated retirement date
(assuming age 65). Once you are enrolled you can always make contributions and investment
election changes.
