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 occupational specialties are continually 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 assist the O*NET system in identifying potential occupations that 
may need to be included in future O*NET data collection efforts; and 
(3) to provide input to a database of alternative (lay) titles to 
facilitate searches for occupational information on the O*NET Web sites 
including O*NET OnLine (http://online.onetcenter.org), My Next Move 
(www.MyNextMove.gov), My Next Move for Veterans (www.MyNextMove.org/vets), O*NET Code Connector (www.onetcodeconnector.org), as well as 
CareerOneStop (www.careeronestop.org). Minor changes were made to the 
previous form to remove two questions that were not needed and minor 
wording changes to clarify existing questions. 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. Additionally, O*NET occupations 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 SOC system, identifying an O*NET-SOC code and title also 
facilitates linkage to national, state, and local occupational 
employment and wage estimates.

II. Review Focus

    The Department is particularly interested in comments which:
     Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is 
necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, 
including whether the information will have practical utility;
     evaluate the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the 
burden of the proposed collection of information, including the 
validity of the methodology and assumptions used;
     enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the 
information to be collected; and
     minimize the burden of the collection of information on 
those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate 
automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection 
techniques, or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting
