Analyst Resource Center Newsletter Provides Updates of Interest


The Analyst Resource Center (ARC) is a joint effort between the Employment and Training Administration and the states to enhance information delivery to workforce customers in the employment, education and economic development sectors.

The Analyst Resource Center has published its Winter 2013 "E-News." This edition contains many articles of interest to the workforce community including features on:

  • After the Military
  • Crosswalks for Education
  • Occupational Licensing Tables

Each year the National Crosswalk Service Center (NCSC) produces a report on its activities during the previous program year. The report for the year ending June 30, 2012 was recently made available. The "E-News" provides a link to the report and a list of highlights.

O*NET: Opportunity to Comment on Occupational Code Assignment Form


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.

The use of the OCA is voluntary and is provided

  • as a uniform format to the public and private sector to submit information in order to receive assistance in identifying an occupational code,
  • to assist the O*NET system in identifying potential occupations that may need to be included in future O*NET data collection efforts.

The Employment and Training Administration today published the thirty-day notice for the OCA, requesting comments to the  by April 11.  Click here for the sixty-day notice.

 

Unemployment Insurance: ETA Seeks Comments on Resource Justification Model Data Collection Instrument


The collection of actual Unemployment Insurance (UI) administrative cost data from states''' accounting records and projected expenditures for upcoming years is accomplished through the Resource Justification Model (RJM) data collection instrument. The data collected consists of program expenditures and hours worked by state staff, broken out by functional activity, for the most recent two years of expenditures. This actual cost data informs the Employment and Training Administration’s administrative funding allocation model so that state UI program administration funds are allocated in proportion to the level of state activities.

ETA is currently seeking comments on the proposed extension (without changes) of the RJT data collection instrument. Comments are due by May 6, 2013.
