SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Type of meeting: The meeting is open to the public.

Purpose: This discretionary Panel, established under the Federal Advisory Committee Act of 1972, as amended, shall report to the Commissioner of Social Security. The Panel will advise the Agency on the creation of an occupational information system tailored specifically for the Social Security Administration's (SSA) disability determination process and adjudicative needs. Advice and recommendations will relate to SSA's disability programs in the following areas: medical and vocational analysis of disability claims; occupational analysis, including definitions, ratings and capture of physical and mental/cognitive demands of work and other occupational information critical to SSA disability programs; data collection; use of occupational information in SSA's disability programs; and any other area(s) that would enable SSA to develop an occupational information system suited to its disability programs and improve the medical-vocational adjudication policies and processes.

Agenda: The Panel will meet on Wednesday, September 1, 2010, from 8:30 a.m. until 5 p.m. (EST) and Thursday, September 2, 2010, from 8:30 a.m. until 11:30 a.m. (EST).

The tentative agenda for this meeting includes: a presentation on the status of the SSA FY 2010 Occupational Information System Development (OID) project activities and the proposed integration with Panel milestones; subcommittee chair reports; individual and organizational public comment; presentations on several OID research projects currently underway; Panel discussion and deliberation; and, an administrative business meeting.
