The Status of the NOICC/SOICC Network: September 30, 1980. NOICC Administrative Report No. 5.
National Occupational Information Coordinating Committee (DOL/ETA), Washington, DC.
During Fiscal Year 1979-1980, the National Occupational Information Coordinating Committee (NOICC) and its network of state counterparts, State Occupational Information Coordinating Committees (SOICCs), made progress in carrying out their legislative mandates to develop and implement an occupational information system, to improve interagency communication and coordination, and to give special attention to the labor market information needs of youth. First, NOICC prepared a framework document that established the minimum parameters of the Occupational Information System (OIS) and defined the basic informational requirements and standards that the OIS must satisfy. In addition, a grant was awarded to train SOICC personnel, and many other start-up projects were designed and implemented. In order to increase interagency communication and coordination, NOICC participated in joint workshops and training sessions with the Veterans Administration, the Federal Trade Commission, the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the Department of Defense, and the Employment and Training Administration. NOICC also spent more than $3 million to support the labor market information needs of youth. Much of the money was spent to continue to develop the career information delivery systems in each state and to tie them to the national system. Grants were provided for various states to carry out projects in this area. Future directions for NOICC and its state units were planned to continue the work started during this fiscal year. (KC)
