SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    The Occupational Code Assignment form (ETA 741) was developed as a 
public service to the users of the Occupational Information Network 
(O*NET), in an effort to help them in obtaining occupational codes and 
titles for jobs that they are unable to locate in O*NET. The O*NET 
system classifies nearly all jobs in the United States economy. 
However, new specialties are constantly evolving and emerging. The use 
of the OCA is voluntary and is provided (1) as a uniform format to the 
public and private sector to submit information in order to receive 
assistance in identifying an occupational code, (2) to provide input to 
a database of alternative (lay) titles to facilitate searches for 
occupational information in the O*NET Web sites including O*NET OnLine 
(http://online.onetcenter.org), My Next Move (www.MyNextMove.gov) and 
My Next Move for Veterans (www.MyNextMove.org/vets) O*NET Code 
Connector (www.onetcodeconnector.org), as well as America's Career 
InfoNet (www.acinet.org), and (3) to assist the O*NET system in 
identifying potential occupations that may need to be included in 
future O*NET data collection efforts.
    The OCA process is designed to help the occupational information 
user relate an occupational specialty or a job title to an occupational 
code and title within the framework of the Standard Occupational 
Classification (SOC) based O*NET system. The O*NET-SOC system consists 
of a database that organizes the work done by individuals into 
approximately 1,000 occupational categories. In addition, O*NET 
occupation have associated data on the importance and level of a range 
of occupational characteristics and requirements, including Knowledge, 
Skills, Abilities, Tasks and Work Activities. Since the O*NET-SOC 
system is based on the 2010 SOC system, identifying an O*NET-SOC code 
and title also facilitates linkage to national, state, and local 
occupational employment and wage estimates.
