More information about the Standard Occupational Classification system, including the full SOC structure, is available from the BLS SOC page.Detailed information on using the SOC to classify occupations can be found in the SOC User Guide.If you are signing up or verifying your account, and you receive an error message related to a duplicate Tax Number, please contact SEPTA to help resolve the issue."Yes - I want to receive automatic notification of solicitations that match my selected Commodity codes as well as being notified 24 hours in advance of the closing of solicitations that match my selected codes.SEPTA requires at least one Commodity Code related to your organization to be selected during Sign Up and Verification.The federal tax number field is required by all vendors in the United States.If you are a Canadian vendor, you may enter 'Canadian' in this field.
SEPTA's EPS application does not allow multiple vendors to use the same Federal Tax Number.
Given the multiple interdependent programs that rely on the SOC, this is best accomplished by timing revisions of the SOC for the years following North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) revisions, which occur for years ending in 2 and 7.
The next such year is 2018, which has the additional benefit of coinciding with the beginning year of the American Community Survey 5-year set of surveys that bracket the 2020 Decennial Census.
To facilitate classification, detailed occupations are combined to form 461 broad occupations, 97 minor groups, and 23 major groups.
Detailed occupations in the SOC with similar job duties, and in some cases skills, education, and/or training, are grouped together.
