This document presents the Ohio Integrated Technical and Academic Competency (ITAC) profile for administrative office technology, which is a comprehensive listing of 58 occupational skill competencies deemed essential for Ohio graduates of programs in office technology. The document begins with an introduction to the ITAC system, a list of professionals involved in the identification of competencies for administrative office technology, and an overview of the administrative office technology field today and its likely development in the future. The overview is followed by sections for each of seven competency areas identified. Each section consists of lists of the occupational skill competencies accompanied by key indicators for assessing mastery of the specialty and foundation skills constituting each individual competency. The competency areas are office operations; leadership and management; finance and accounting; economics; communications; technology applications; and professional and career development. The competencies reflect the job opportunities and skills required for employment in the field as identified through extensive research and input from industry, labor, professional organizations, and other stakeholders in the administrative office technology field. Critical academic, employability, and information technology skills have been integrated throughout the list to support the technical skills presented. The competencies are organized so that they can be clustered or grouped in a modular approach and used as the basis for curriculum development in Ohio's secondary, adult, and postsecondary programs.
