Project Description

Short Summary

This project in the Division of Compensation Analysis and Support (DCAS) manages records and data collected as a result of the implementation of the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act of 2000 (EEOICPA).

This project supports the responsibilities under the Energy Employee Illness Compensation Program Act and R2P activities. The project provides for the maintenance and organization of the scientific and occupational health data used in dose reconstructions to researchers and the public. This task is expected to continue throughout the life of the program. Activities will include managing data and records on potentially up to 135,000 claimants, plus related actions needed to respond to claimants, researchers, and the public under the FOIA/Privacy Act. A contract to develop an electronic database and data management system will be established

Mission Relevance

The Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act (EEOICPA)of 2000 established a program for assisting nuclear workers who have incurred work-related illnesses. NIOSH provides scientific assistance and occupational health information to the Department of Labor (DOL) as DOL administers the program. NIOSH has developed scientific guidelines for determining whether a worker's cancer is related to the worker's occupational exposure to radiation as well as establishing methods and developing guidelines to estimate worker exposure to radiation. This project manages records and data collected as a result of the NIOSH’s implementation of EEOICPA, including providing data used in dose reconstructions to researchers and the public.
