The National Occupational Information Coordinating Committee/State Occupational Information Coordinating Committees (NOICC/SOICC) Network sponsors numerous occupational information programs and systems, including career information delivery systems (CIDS). CIDS provide useful national, state, and local information for people who are exploring, planning, or making decisions about careers. CIDS integrate data from many federal and state agency programs designed to meet the needs of various groups, including upper elementary and middle school students, high school students, adults in transition, and retired persons. CIDS provide "fingertip access" to the world of work by helping users match their individual interests, skills, and abilities to potential education and employment opportunities. The use of CIDS programs can be described as a cycle in which users access occupational and education/training information that is then delivered to them via computer or other media. State CIDS now serve 7 million users at more than 18,000 sites annually. (Appended are the following: information about statewide delivery of career information; names/addresses of CIDS developers and state CIDS directors; information about the Association of Computer-Based Systems for Career Information; standards for computer-based CIDS; information about the National Career Development Association; description of NOICC/SOICC career development initiatives; and phone numbers of SOICC directors.)
