GovFuture Forum Online July 2023: Bureau of Labor Statistics Demo – NOVA Validation tool for the Occupational Requirements Survey

Tue. July 25, 2023 @ 11:30 ET

Join us at GovFuture Forum online for an in-depth demo of NOVA: A BLS Validation tool for the Occupational Requirements Survey from Anderson Freeman and Zach Gann.

With the help of emerging technologies, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) is able to reduce many of their laborious processes. Come and learn how the BLS is optimizing and enhancing their systems with advanced technology, analytics, and approaches that move beyond human-based processes and old excel spreadsheets.

The Occupational Requirements Survey (ORS) is a product of the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). The ORS provides job-related information regarding physical demands; environmental conditions; education, training, and experience; as well as cognitive and mental requirements for jobs in the U.S. economy. The NCS-ORS Validation Application (NOVA) was developed to have an in-house validation application for ORS estimates. Validators are able to create assignments, enter validation remarks, and validate estimates at each production milestone. This is an improvement in our prior business process that required manual validation of estimates with an Excel file.
