OCAS is the Office of Compensation Analysis and Support at NIOSH. OCAS is responsible for conducting occupational radiation dose reconstructions for certain workers with cancer who filed claims for compensation under the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act (EEOICPA). In order to conduct the dose reconstruction, OCAS will obtain information, data, and records from the Department of Energy (DOE) or other sites where an individual has worked. In addition, OCAS will conduct telephone interviews with each claimant. This interview is designed to obtain any additional information regarding radiation exposure and work history to help us identify the information we need from DOE to complete radiation dose reconstructions.
