THE GUIDE TO DATA STANDARDS
Part A: Human Resources
OVERVIEW
General
Personnel data standards revisions occur throughout the year to reflect changes in human
resource programs. We issue these revisions as changes in the Unincorporated Changes
section of this manual's Appendix. Readers should always check the Unincorporated
Changes section of the Appendix for any revisions that have occurred since the last
Update.
We issue complete revisions of this manual as Updates. When we issue an Update, we
incorporate all the changes effective as of the date of the Update. This date is shown at
the bottom of each page. We list all the revisions in the Incorporated Changes section in
this manual's Appendix. Thus, any change in the body of the manual from one Update to
the next is listed in the Incorporated Changes section.
Authority
The Office of Personnel Management's authority to prescribe Federal civilian human
resources data standards is based on:
-
Title 5, Section 2951 of the U.S. Code (5 U.S.C. 2951).
-
Title 5, Part 9.2 of the Code of Federal Regulations (5 CFR 9.2).
Objectives
The objectives of the data standards program are to facilitate use of Federal civilian
human resources data and to avoid unnecessary duplication and incompatibility in the
collection, processing, and dissemination of such data.
Update 14, February 28, 2014

THE GUIDE TO DATA STANDARDS
Part A: Human Resources
OVERVIEW
Responsibilities
1. Office of Personnel Management responsibilities. The Office of Personnel
Management is responsible for managing the Federal civilian personnel data
standards program and for overseeing the development, implementation, and
maintenance of Federal civilian personnel data standards.
2. Agency responsibilities. The agencies are responsible for assisting the Office of
Personnel Management in the development, implementation, and maintenance of
Federal civilian personnel data standards and for using the data standards, as
appropriate, on official personnel documents and Enterprise Human Resources
Integration (EHRI) submissions.
Development, Implementation, and Maintenance
1. Development. Data element standards are developed to satisfy information needs.
Such development may be initiated by the Office of Personnel Management or
requested by an agency by writing to: Manager, Records Management, Office of the
Chief Information Officer (OCIO), Office of Personnel Management, 1900 E Street
NW, Washington, DC 20415-6000. A requirements analysis is performed to
determine how best to satisfy the information needs, whether the information benefits
justify the data collection and processing costs, and whether new or revised data
element standards are required.
Draft standards are developed in cooperation with the primary user of the
information. The draft standards are then concurrently reviewed by the Office of
Personnel Management program offices. Any modifications to the draft standards are
coordinated with the primary user to ensure that the modified draft standards satisfy
user information needs.
2. Implementation. Implementation of data element standards to satisfy Office of
Personnel Management reporting requirements is done in consultation with the
agencies to minimize implementation costs.
3. Maintenance. To assure proper maintenance, each data element standard specifies the
organization that is responsible for authorizing revisions to the data element and
ensuring that the data element is kept current.

CYBERSECURITY CATEGORY/SPECIALITY AREA
Definition:
A position’s or incumbent’s primary work function involving
cybersecurity
Responsible Organization: Employee Services, Classification and Assessment Policy
Applicability:
Mandatory (Enterprise Human Resources Integration HR Status,
HR Dynamics data feeds)
Cross-Reference:
OCCUPATION; SUPERVISORY STATUS
Format:
NUMBER_F(2)
Note:
The Cybersecurity Category/Specialty Area code is used to identify incumbents or positions for
which the primary function is cybersecurity. Cybersecurity is an evolving area and positions may
be classified in a number of different occupational series based on the nature of the work. Use of
this code will enable OPM and Federal agencies to identify the cybersecurity workforce,
determine baseline capabilities, examine hiring trends, identify skill gaps, and more effectively
recruit, hire, train, develop and retain an effective cybersecurity workforce.
The Cybersecurity Category/Specialty Area codes and definitions are from the National
Cybersecurity Workforce Framework (http://csrc.nist.gov/nice/framework/). The Framework
consists of Categories and Specialty Areas. Each Specialty Area falls within a Category.
Assignment to a Cybersecurity Category or Specialty Area should be based upon the duties in
which the incumbent is primarily engaged or which best reflects the requirements of the job.
Only one code is permitted so it is important that the most appropriate code is used and that the
codes are used consistently.
In most cases, a single Specialty Area or Category can be readily identified. However, in some
instances additional decision rules are required to make an appropriate determination. This may
be more likely to occur in smaller agencies or organizations. The following instructions prescribe
the process for assigning these codes.


If the work of an incumbent or the requirements of a position are predominantly in one
Specialty Area, that code should be used.
If the work of an incumbent or the requirements of a position involve more than one
Specialty Area, the following decision rules apply:
Update 14, February 28, 2014
A-104
THE GUIDE TO DATA STANDARDS
Part A: Human Resources
o If there is a single Specialty Area that is predominant, the code for that Specialty Area
should be used.
o If there are multiple relevant Specialty Areas within a Category and no single Specialty
Area predominates, the code for the Category in which those Specialty Areas fall should
be used. For example, a position may require both Computer Network Defense (CND)
Analysis and Incident Response. In this circumstance the code for the Category Protect
and Defend (50) should be used.
o If there are multiple relevant Specialty Areas in multiple Categories, the same logic
applies, i.e., use the code for the single predominant Specialty Area if there is one and use
the Category code if multiple Specialty Areas in that Category predominate.
Individuals primarily engaged in project or program management for cybersecurity projects or
tasks should be coded with the Cybersecurity Program/Project Management value (80).
Positions and incumbent supervisors, managers, and leaders engaged in supervision of a
cybersecurity function or staff performing cybersecurity work should be coded with the
Cybersecurity Supervision, Management, and Leadership value (90). However, if the
supervisor, manager, or leader performs cybersecurity work as an individual contributor, the
Category or Specialty Area should be selected based on the greater of the two (i.e., if the
individual’s cybersecurity work is predominant relative to the supervisory or management
function, that individual cybersecurity work should drive the Category determination). If the
code is based on individual contribution the above decision rules apply.
All Category codes end in zero. The first digit of each Specialty Area code is the same as the first
digit of the corresponding Category Code. For example, Specialty Area Information Assurance
(IA) Compliance (code 61) falls under the Category of Securely Provision (code 60).

FUNCTIONAL CLASSIFICATION
Definition:
An employee's primary work function as a scientist or
engineer.
Responsible Organization:
National Science Foundation, Government Studies Group.
Applicability:
Mandatory (Enterprise Human Resources Integration HR
Status, and HR Dynamics data feeds).
Format:
NUMBER_F(2)
Note:
The functional classification rests on the principle that the coding of positions to categories
will be done on the basis of the function in which the individual is "primarily engaged." The
primary function is the single functional category which occupies the largest proportion of
the employee's time or which best reflects a combination of functions in terms of the
paramount requirements of the job.
The object is to capture, insofar as practical, what a person does. For example, a person who
is primarily engaged in designing equipment for a testing program should be coded to Design
and not to Test and Evaluation. A person who is primarily engaged in providing expert
advice and consultation to others (in different agencies, or States, or foreign governments,
etc.) on data collection, should be coded to Technical Assistance and Consulting and not to
Data Collection, Processing, and Analysis.
Because of the myriad of different ways in which work is organized in the Federal
Government, the categories are not completely discrete. The categories by and large consist
of aggregates of subfunctions or activities. Cost estimating, for example, is defined as a
subfunction of other functions such as Development and Planning. Similarly, analysis of
data, which is defined as a subfunction of Data Collection, Processing, and Analysis, is also
performed as a part of Research and other functions. (Even an activity like planning, which
constitutes a functional category by itself, may be performed as an integral part of the work
of other categories).
Update 14, February 28, 2014
A-160
THE GUIDE TO DATA STANDARDS
Part A: Human Resources
FUNCTIONAL CLASSIFICATION (Continued)
Note (continued):
The coding of a person primarily engaged in an activity which is a subfunction of more than
one functional category should be guided by the work relationships. Cost estimating which
is part of the design process should be coded to Design; cost estimating which is a part of the
construction process should be coded to Construction. Analysis of data which is an integral
part of Research should be coded to Research. In cases like these, selection of the proper
category depends upon the purpose and setting of the individual's work.
Separate categories are not provided for each of the activities carried out in the Federal
Government. Examples of activities for which a separate category was not established are
frequency allocation, valuation engineering, patent examining, and operations research.
Generally, these activities are specialized and represent small populations. Data on those that
are identified as separate occupations (patent examining and operations research) can be
obtained from the Office of Personnel Management's occupational statistics. Jobs in
specialized activities such as these should be coded, if possible, to the most appropriate
category provided (e.g., patent examination to Regulatory Enforcement and Licensing).
It is fully recognized that there are many "mixed" functional positions. Wherever possible,
the use of "Other--Not Elsewhere Classified" should be avoided. Coding of mixed jobs
should be guided by the functional category which is most significant in terms of proportion
of time or the qualifications required to perform the work successfully. Coding of mixed
function positions to "Other--Not Elsewhere Classified" should be limited to those jobs of
such generalized nature that no one functional category predominates.
Many positions, particularly in Research and Development, are mixed in that the employee
performs over a period of time a sequence of functions such as research, development,
production, etc. Coding of such jobs should be done on the basis of the primary function
over a reasonable period of time, generally about a year. (Change in primary function which
occurs at the end of one or several year periods should of course result in a change in the
coding of the job).
Persons engaged in supervision of a function are to be included in the count of those engaged
in performing the function.

LISTENING PROFICIENCY

given spoken language.
Responsible Organization:
Department of Defense, Defense Language Institute.
Applicability:
Voluntary.
Cross-Reference:
None.
Format:
NUMBER_F(2)
Note:
The following proficiency level descriptions characterize comprehension of the spoken
language. Each of the six "base levels" (coded 00, 10, 20, 30, 40, and 50) implies control of
any previous "base level's" function and accuracy. The "plus level" designation (coded 06,
16, 26, etc.) will be assigned when proficiency substantially exceeds one base skill level and
does not fully meet the criteria for the next "base level." The "plus level" descriptions are
therefore supplementary to the "base level" descriptions.
A skill level is assigned to a person through an authorized language examination. Examiners
assign a level on a variety of performance criteria exemplified in the descriptive statements.
Therefore, the examples given here illustrate, but do not exhaustively describe, either the
skills a person may possess or situations in which he/she may function effectively.
Statements describing accuracy refer to typical stages in the development of competence in
the most commonly taught languages in formal training programs. In other languages,
emerging competence parallels these characterizations, but often with different details.
Unless otherwise specified, the term "native listener" refers to native speakers and listeners
of a standard dialect.
"Well-educated," in the context of these proficiency descriptions, does not necessarily imply
formal higher education. However, in cultures where formal higher education is common,
the language-use abilities of persons who have had such education is considered the standard.
That is, such a person meets contemporary expectations for the formal, careful style of the
language, as well as a range of less formal varieties of the language.

Listening, No Proficiency. No practical understanding of the spoken language.
Understanding is limited to occasional isolated words with essentially no ability
to comprehend communication. (Has been abbreviated L-O in some
nonautomated applications.)
06
Listening, Memorized Proficiency. Sufficient comprehension to understand a
number of memorized utterances in areas of immediate needs. Slight increase in
utterance length understood but requires frequent long pauses between understood
phrases and repeated requests on the listener's part for repetition. Understands
with reasonable accuracy only when this involves short memorized utterances
formulae. Utterances understood are relatively short in length. Misunderstandings
arise due to ignoring or inaccurately hearing sounds or word endings (both
inflectional and non-inflectional), distorting the original meaning. Can understand
only with difficulty even such people as teachers who are used to speaking with
non-native speakers. Can understand best those statements where context strongly
supports the utterance's meaning. Gets some main ideas. (Has been abbreviated LO+ in some nonautomated applications.)
10
Listening, Elementary Proficiency. Sufficient comprehension to understand
utterances about basic survival needs and minimum courtesy and travel
requirements. In areas of immediate need or on very familiar topics, can
understand simple questions and answers, simple statements and very simple
face-to-face conversations in a standard dialect. These must often be delivered
more clearly than normal at a rate slower than normal, with frequent repetitions or
paraphrase (that is, by a native used to dealing with foreigners). Once learned,
these sentences can be varied for similar level vocabulary and grammar and still
be understood. In the majority of utterances, misunderstandings arise due to
overlooked or misunderstood syntax and other grammatical clues. Comprehension
vocabulary inadequate to understand anything but the most elementary needs.
Strong interference from the candidate's native language occurs. Little precision
in the information understood due to the tentative state of passive grammar and
lack of vocabulary. Comprehension areas include basic needs such as: meals,
lodging, transportation, time and simple directions (including both route
instructions and orders from customs officials, policemen, etc.). Understands
main ideas. (Has been abbreviated L-1 in some nonautomated applications.)

Listening, Elementary Proficiency, Plus. Sufficient comprehension to understand
short conversations about all survival needs and limited social demands.
Developing flexibility evident in understanding into a range of circumstances
beyond immediate survival needs. Shows spontaneity in understanding by speed,
although consistency of understanding uneven. Limited vocabulary range
necessitates repetition for understanding. Understands more common time forms
and most question forms, some word order patterns, but miscommunication still
occurs with more complex patterns. Cannot sustain understanding of coherent
structures in longer utterances or in unfamiliar situations. Understanding of
descriptions and the giving of precise information is limited. Aware of basic
cohesive features, e.g., pronouns, verb inflections, but many are unreliably
understood, especially if less immediate in reference. Understanding is largely
limited to a series of short, discrete utterances. Still has to ask for utterances to be
repeated. Some ability to understand facts. (Has been abbreviated L-1+ in some
nonautomated applications.)
20
Listening, Limited Working Proficiency. Sufficient comprehension to understand
conversations on routine social demands and limited job requirements. Able to
understand face-to-face speech in a standard dialect, delivered at a normal rate
with some repetition and rewording, by a native speaker not used to dealing with
foreigners, about everyday topics, common personal and family news, wellknown current events, routine office matters through descriptions and narration
about current, past and future events; can follow essential points of discussion or
speech at an elementary level on topics in his/her special professional field. Only
understands occasional words and phrases of statements made in unfavorable
conditions, for example through loudspeakers outdoors. Understands factual
content. Native language causes less interference in listening comprehension.

Listening, General Professional Proficiency. Able to understand the essentials of
all speech in a standard dialect including technical discussions within a special
field. Has effective understanding of face-to-face speech, delivered with normal
clarity and speed in a standard dialect, on general topics and areas of special
interest; understands hypothesizing and supported opinions. Has broad enough
vocabulary that rarely has to ask for paraphrasing or explanation. Can follow
accurately the essentials of conversations between educated native speakers,
reasonably clear telephone calls, radio broadcasts, news stories similar to wire
service reports, oral reports, some oral technical reports and public addresses on
non-technical subjects; can understand without difficulty all forms of standard
speech concerning a special professional field. Does not understand native

extreme dialect and slang, also in understanding speech in unfavorable conditions,
for example through bad loudspeakers outdoors. Can discern relationships among
sophisticated listening materials in the context of broad experience. Can follow
unpredictable turns of thought readily in, for example, informal and formal speech
covering editorial, conjectural, and literary materials in subject matter areas

Blue collar. Occupations comprising the trades, crafts, and manual labor
(unskilled, semiskilled, and skilled), including foreman and supervisory positions
entailing trade, craft, or laboring experience and knowledge as the paramount
requirement.
WHITE COLLAR (Occupational Series 0001 through 2299).
P
Professional. White collar occupations that require knowledge in a field of
science or learning characteristically acquired through education or training
equivalent to a bachelor's or higher degree with major study in or pertinent to the
specialized field, as distinguished from general education. The work of a
professional occupation requires the exercise of discretion, judgment, and
personal responsibility for the application of an organized body of knowledge that
is constantly studied to make new discoveries and interpretations, and to improve
the data, materials, and methods.
A
Administrative. White collar occupations that involve the exercise of analytical
ability, judgment, discretion, and personal responsibility, and the application of a
substantial body of knowledge of principles, concepts, and practices applicable to
one or more fields of administration or management. While these positions do not
require specialized educational majors, they do involve the type of skills
(analytical, research, writing, judgment) typically gained through a college level
general education, or through progressively responsible experience. Occupation
series in this category typically follow a two-grade interval pattern.
T
Technical. White collar occupations that involve work typically associated with
and supportive of a professional or administrative field, that is nonroutine in
nature; that involves extensive practical knowledge, gained through on-job
experience and/or specific training less than that represented by college
graduation. Work in these occupations may involve substantial elements of the
work of the professional or administrative field, but requires less than full
competence in the field involved. Occupation series in this category typically
follow a one-grade interval pattern.

NUMBER_F(2)
Note:
The following proficiency level descriptions characterize comprehension of the written
language. Each of the six "base levels" (coded 00, 10, 20, 30, 40, and 50) implies control of
any previous "base level's" functions and accuracy. The "plus level" designation (coded 06,
16, 26, etc.) will be assigned when proficiency substantially exceeds one base skill level and
does not fully meet the criteria for the next "base level." The "plus level" descriptions are
therefore supplementary to the "base level" descriptions.
A skill level is assigned to a person through an authorized language examination. Examiners
assign a level on a variety of performance criteria exemplified in the descriptive statements.
Therefore, the examples given here illustrate, but do not exhaustively describe, either the
skills a person may possess or situations in which he/she may function effectively.
Statements describing accuracy refer to typical stages in the development of competence in
the most commonly taught languages in formal training programs. In other languages,
emerging competence parallels these characterizations, but often with different details.
Unless otherwise specified, the term "native reader" refers to native readers of a standard
dialect.

READING PROFICIENCY (Continued)
Note (continued):
"Well-educated," in the context of these proficiency descriptions, does not necessarily imply
formal higher education. However, in cultures where formal higher education is common,
the language-use abilities of persons who have had such education is considered the standard.
That is, such a person meets contemporary expectations for the formal, careful style of the
language, as well as range of less formal varieties of the language.
In the following descriptions a standard set of text-types is associated with each level. The
text-type is generally characterized in each descriptive statement.
The word "read," in the context of these proficiency descriptions, means that the person at a
given skill level can thoroughly understand the communicative intent in the text-types
described. In the usual case the reader could be expected to make a full representation,
thorough summary, or translation of the text into English.
Other useful operations can be performed on written texts that do not require the ability to
"read," as defined above. Examples of such tasks which people of a given skill level may
reasonably be expected to perform are provided, when appropriate, in the descriptions.

06
Reading, Memorized Proficiency. Can recognize all the letters in the printed
version of an alphabetic system and high-frequency elements of a syllabary or a
character system. Able to read some or all of the following: numbers, isolated
words and phrases, personal and place names, street signs, office and shop
designations. The above often interpreted inaccurately. Unable to read connected
prose. (Has been abbreviated R-O+ in some nonautomated applications.)
10
Reading, Elementary Proficiency. Sufficient comprehension to read very simple
connected written material in a form equivalent to usual printing of typescript.
Can read either representations of familiar formulaic verbal exchanges or simple
language containing only the highest frequency structural patterns and
vocabulary, including shared international vocabulary items and cognates (when
appropriate). Able to read and understand known language elements that have
been recombined in new ways to achieve different meanings at a similar level of
simplicity. Texts may include simple narratives of routine behavior; highly
predictable descriptions of persons, places or things; and explanations of
geography and government such as those simplified for tourists. Some
misunderstandings possible on simple texts. Can get some main ideas and locate
prominent items of professional significance in more complex texts. Can identify
general subject matter in some authentic texts. (Has been abbreviated R-1 in

Reading, Elementary Proficiency, Plus. Sufficient comprehension to understand
simple discourse in printed form for informative social purposes. Can read
material such as announcements of public events, simple prose containing
biographical information or narration of events, and straightforward newspaper
headlines. Can guess at unfamiliar vocabulary if highly contextualized, but with
difficulty in unfamiliar contexts. Can get some main ideas and locate routine
information of professional significance in more complex texts. Can follow
essential points of written discussion at an elementary level on topics in his/her
professional field. In commonly taught languages, the individual may not control
the structure well. For example, basic grammatical relations are often
misinterpreted, and temporal reference may rely primarily on lexical items as time
indicators. Has some difficulty with the cohesive factors in discourse, such as
matching pronouns with referents. May have to read materials several times for
understanding. (Has been abbreviated R-1+ in some nonautomated applications.)
20
Reading, Limited Working Proficiency. Sufficient comprehension to read simple,
authentic written material in a form equivalent to usual printing or typescript on
subjects within a familiar context. Able to read with some misunderstandings
straightforward, familiar, factual material, but in general insufficiently
experienced with the language to draw inferences directly from the linguistic
aspects of the text. Can locate and understand the main ideas and details in
material written for the general reader. However, persons who have professional
knowledge of a subject may be able to summarize or perform sorting and locating
tasks with written texts that are well beyond their general proficiency level. The
individual can read uncomplicated, but authentic prose on familiar subjects that
are normally presented in a predictable sequence which aids the reader in
understanding. Texts may include descriptions and narrations in contexts such as
news items describing frequently occurring events, simple biographical
information, social notices, formulaic business letters, and simple technical
material written for the general reader. Generally the prose that can be read by the
individual is predominantly in straightforward/high-frequency sentence patterns.
The individual does not have a broad active vocabulary (that is, which he/she
recognizes immediately on sight), but is able to use contextual and real world cues
to understand the text. Characteristically, however, the individual is quite slow in
performing such a process. He/she is typically able to answer factual questions
about authentic texts of the types described above. (Has been abbreviated R-2 in

discussions on concrete topics related to special professional interests. Is
markedly more proficient at reading materials on a familiar topic. Is able to
separate the main ideas and details from lesser ones and uses that distinction to
advance understanding. The individual is able to use linguistic context and realworld knowledge to make sensible guesses about unfamiliar material. Has a
broad active reading vocabulary. The individual is able to get the gist of main and
subsidiary ideas in texts which could only be read thoroughly by persons with
much higher proficiencies. Weaknesses include slowness, uncertainty, inability to
discern nuance and/or intentionally disguised meaning. (Has been abbreviated R2+ in some nonautomated applications.)
30
Reading, General Professional Proficiency. Able to read within a normal range of
speed and with almost complete comprehension a variety of authentic prose
material on unfamiliar subjects. Reading ability is not dependent on subject
matter knowledge, although it is not expected that the individual can comprehend
thoroughly subject matter which is highly dependent on cultural knowledge or
which is outside his/her general experience and not accompanied by explanation.
Text-types include news stories similar to wire service reports or international
news items in major periodicals, routine correspondence, general reports, and
technical material in his/her professional field; all of these may include
hypothesis, argumentation, and supported opinions. Misreading rare. Almost
always able to interpret material correctly, relate ideas, and "read between the
lines," (that is, understand the writers' implicit intents in texts of the above types).
Can get the gist of more sophisticated texts, but may be unable to detect or
understand subtlety and nuance. Rarely has to pause over or reread general
vocabulary. However, may experience some difficulty with unusually complex
structure and low frequency idioms. (Has been abbreviated R-3 in some

understand almost all sociolinguistic and cultural references. Able to "read
beyond the lines" (that is, to understand the full ramifications of texts as they are
situated in the wider cultural, political, or social environment). Able to read and
understand the intent of writers' use of nuance and subtlety. The individual can
discern relationships among sophisticated written materials in the context of broad
experience. Can follow unpredictable turns of thought readily in, for example,
editorial, conjectural, and literary texts in any subject matter area directed to the
general reader. Can read essentially all materials in his/her special field,
including official and professional documents and correspondence. Recognizes
all professionally relevant vocabulary known to the educated non-professional

SPEAKING PROFICIENCY
Definition:
The assessed proficiency of the individual in speaking a given
language.
Responsible Organization:
Department of Defense, Defense Language Institute.
Applicability:
Voluntary.
Format:
NUMBER_F(2)
Note:
The following proficiency level descriptions characterize spoken language use. Each of the
six "base levels" (coded 00, 10, 20, 30, 40, and 50) implies control of any previous "base
level's" functions and accuracy. The "plus level" designation (coded 06, 16, 26, etc.) will be
assigned when proficiency substantially exceeds one base skill level and does not fully meet
the criteria for the next "base level." The "plus level" descriptions are therefore
supplementary to the "base level" descriptions.
A skill level is assigned to a person through an authorized language examination. Examiners
assign a level on a variety of performance criteria exemplified in the descriptive statements.
Therefore, the examples given here illustrate, but do not exhaustively describe, either the
skills a person may possess or situations in which he/she may function effectively.
Statements describing accuracy refer to typical stages in the development of competence in
the most commonly taught languages in formal training programs. In other languages,
emerging competence parallels these characterizations, but often with different details.
Unless otherwise specified, the term "native speaker" refers to native speakers of a standard
dialect.
"Well-educated," in the context of these proficiency descriptions, does not necessarily imply
formal higher education. However, in cultures where formal higher education is common, the
language-use abilities of persons who have had such education is considered the standard.
That is, such a person meets contemporary expectations for the formal, careful style of the
language, as well as a range of less formal varieties of the language.

Speaking, No Proficiency. Unable to function in the spoken language. Oral
production is limited to occasional isolated words. Has essentially no
communicative ability. (Has been abbreviated S-0 in some non-automated
applications.)
06
Speaking, Memorized Proficiency. Able to satisfy immediate needs using
rehearsed utterances. Shows little real autonomy of expression, flexibility, or
spontaneity. Can ask questions or make statements with reasonable accuracy only
with memorized utterances or formulae. Attempts at creating speech are usually
unsuccessful.
Examples: The individual's vocabulary is usually limited to areas of immediate
survival needs. Most utterances are telegraphic; that is, functors (linking words,
markers, and the like) are omitted, confused, or distorted. The individual can
usually differentiate most significant sounds when produced in isolation, but,
when combined in words or groups of words, errors may be frequent. Even with
repetition, communication is severely limited even with people used to dealing
with foreigners. Stress, intonation, tone, etc. are usually quite faulty. (Has been
abbreviated S-O+ in some nonautomated applications.)

SPEAKING PROFICIENCY (Continued)
Code:
Name/Explanation:
10
Speaking, Elementary Proficiency. Able to satisfy minimum courtesy
requirements and maintain very simple face-to-face conversations on familiar
topics. A native speaker must often use slowed speech, repetition, paraphrase, or a
combination of these to be understood by the individual. Similarly, the native
speaker must strain and employ real-world knowledge to understand even simple
statements/questions from this individual. This speaker has a functional, but
limited proficiency. Misunderstandings are frequent, but the individual is able to
ask for help and to verify comprehension of native speech in face-to-face
interaction. The individual is unable to produce continuous discourse except with
rehearsed material.
Examples: Structural accuracy is likely to be random or severely limited. Time
concepts are vague. Vocabulary is inaccurate, and its range is very narrow. The
individual often speaks with great difficulty. By repeating, such speakers can
make themselves understood to native speakers who are in regular contact with
foreigners, but there is little precision in the information conveyed. Needs,
experience, or training may vary greatly from individual to individual, for
example, speakers at this level may have encountered quite different vocabulary
areas. However, the individual can typically satisfy predictable, simple, personal
and accommodation needs; can generally meet courtesy, introduction, and
identification requirements; exchange greetings; elicit and provide, for example,
predictable and skeletal biographical information. He/she might give information
about business hours, explain routine procedures in a limited way, and state in a
simple manner what actions will be taken. He/she is able to formulate some
questions even in languages with complicated question constructions. Almost
every utterance may be characterized by structural errors and errors in basic
grammatical relations. Vocabulary is extremely limited and characteristically does
not include modifiers. Pronunciation, stress, and intonation are generally poor,
often heavily influenced by another language. Use of structure and vocabulary is
highly imprecise. (Has been abbreviated S-1 in some nonautomated applications.)

Speaking, Elementary Proficiency, Plus. Can initiate and maintain predictable
face-to-face conversations and satisfy limited social demands. He/she may,
however, have little understanding of the social conventions of conversation. The
interlocutor is generally required to strain and employ real-world knowledge to
understand even some simple speech. The speaker at this level may hesitate and
may have to change subjects due to lack of language resources. Range and control
of the language are limited. Speech largely consists of a series of short, discrete
utterances.
Examples: The individual is able to satisfy most travel and accommodation needs
and a limited range of social demands beyond exchange of skeletal biographic
information. Speaking ability may extend beyond immediate survival needs.
Accuracy in basic grammatical relations is evident, although not consistent. May
exhibit the more common forms of verb tenses, for example, but may make
frequent errors in formation and selection. While some structures are established,
errors occur in more complex patterns. The individual typically cannot sustain
coherent structures in longer utterances or unfamiliar situations. Ability to
describe and give precise information is limited. Person, space, and time
references are often used incorrectly. Pronunciation is understandable to natives
used to dealing with foreigners. Can combine most significant sounds with
reasonable comprehensibility, but has difficulty in producing certain sounds in
certain positions or in certain combinations. Speech will usually be labored.
Frequently, has to repeat utterances to be understood by the general public. (Has

Speaking, Limited Working Proficiency. Able to satisfy routine social demands
and limited work requirements. Can handle routine work-related interactions that
are limited in scope. In more complex and sophisticated work-related tasks,
language usage generally disturbs the native speaker. Can handle with confidence,
but not with facility, most normal, high-frequency social conversational situations
including extensive, but casual conversations about current events, as well as
work, family, and autobiographical information. The individual can get the gist of
most everyday conversations, but has some difficulty understanding native
speakers in situations that require specialized or sophisticated knowledge. The
individual's utterances are minimally cohesive. Linguistic structure is usually not
very elaborate and not thoroughly controlled; errors are frequent. Vocabulary use
is appropriate for high-frequency utterances, but unusual or imprecise elsewhere.
Examples: While these interactions will vary widely from individual to
individual, the individual can typically ask and answer predictable questions in
the workplace and give straightforward instructions to subordinates. Additionally,
the individual can participate in personal and accommodation-type interactions
with elaboration and facility; that is, can give and understand complicated,
detailed, and extensive directions and make non-routine changes in travel and
accommodation arrangements. Simple structures and basic grammatical relations
are typically controlled; however, there are areas of weakness. In the commonly
taught languages, these may be simple markings such as plurals, articles, linking
words, and negatives or more complex structures such as tense/aspect usage, case
morphology, passive constructions, word order, and embedding. (Has been

Name/Explanation:
26
Speaking, Limited Working Proficiency, Plus. Able to satisfy most work
requirements with language usage that is often, but not always, acceptable and
effective. The individual shows considerable ability to communicate effectively
on topics relating to particular interests and special fields of competence. Often
shows a high degree of fluency and ease of speech, yet when under tension or
pressure, the ability to use the language effectively may deteriorate.
Comprehension of normal native speech is typically nearly complete. The
individual may miss cultural and local references and may require a native
speaker to adjust to his/her limitations in some ways. Native speakers often
perceive the individual's speech to contain awkward or inaccurate phrasing of
ideas, mistaken time, space, and person references, or to be in some way
inappropriate, if not strictly incorrect.
Examples: Typically the individual can participate in most social, formal, and
informal interactions; but limitations either in range of contexts, types of tasks, or
level of accuracy hinder effectiveness. The individual may be ill at ease with the
use of the language either in social interaction or in speaking at length in
professional contexts. He/she is generally strong in either structural precision or
vocabulary, but not in both. Weakness or unevenness in one of the foregoing, or
in pronunciation, occasionally results in miscommunication. Normally controls,
but cannot always easily produce general vocabulary. Discourse is often
incohesive. (Has been abbreviated S-2+ in some nonautomated applications.)
30
Speaking, General Professional Proficiency. Able to speak the language with
sufficient structural accuracy and vocabulary to participate effectively in most
formal and informal conversations on practical, social, and professional topics.
Nevertheless, the individual's limitations generally restrict the professional
contexts of language use to matters of shared knowledge and/or international
convention. Discourse is cohesive. The individual uses the language acceptably,
but with some noticeable imperfections; yet, errors virtually never interfere with
understanding and rarely disturb the native speaker. The individual can effectively
combine structure and vocabulary to convey his/her meaning accurately. The
individual speaks readily and fills pauses suitably. In face-to-face conversation
with natives speaking the standard dialect at a normal rate of speech,
comprehension is quite complete. Although cultural references, proverbs, and the
implications of nuances and idiom may not be fully understood, the individual can

easily repair the conversation. Pronunciation may be obviously foreign. Individual
sounds are accurate; but stress, intonation, and pitch control may be faulty.
Examples: Can typically discuss particular interests and special fields of
competence with reasonable ease. Can use the language as part of normal
professional duties such as answering objections, clarifying points, justifying
decisions, understanding the essence of challenges, stating and defending policy,
conducting meetings, delivering briefings, or other extended and elaborate
informative monologues. Can reliably elicit information and informed opinion
from native speakers. Structural inaccuracy is rarely the major cause of
misunderstanding. Use of structural devices is flexible and elaborate. Without
searching for words or phrases, the individual uses the language clearly and
relatively naturally to elaborate concepts freely and make ideas easily
understandable to native speakers. Errors occur in low-frequency and highly
complex structures. (Has been abbreviated S-3 in some nonautomated
applications.)
36
Speaking, General Professional Proficiency, Plus. Is often able to use the
language to satisfy professional needs in a wide range of sophisticated and
demanding tasks.
Examples: Despite obvious strengths, may exhibit some hesitancy, uncertainty,
effort, or errors which limit the range of language-use tasks that can be reliably
performed. Typically there is particular strength in fluency and one or more, but
not all, of the following: breadth of lexicon, including low-and medium frequency
items, especially sociolinguistic/cultural references and nuances of close
synonyms; structural precision, with sophisticated features that are readily,
accurately, and approximately controlled (such as complex modification and
embedding in Indo-European languages); discourse competence in a wide range
of contexts and tasks, often matching a native speaker's strategic and
organizational abilities and expectations. Occasional patterned errors occur in
low-frequency and highly-complex structures. (Has been abbreviated S-3+ in

Speaking, Advanced Professional Proficiency. Able to use the language fluently
and accurately on all levels normally pertinent to professional needs. The
individual's language usage and ability to function are fully successful. Organizes
discourse well, using appropriate rhetorical speech devices, native cultural
references, and understanding. Language ability only rarely hinders him/her in
performing any task requiring language; yet, the individual would seldom be
perceived as a native. Speaks effortlessly and smoothly and is able to use the
language with a high degree of effectiveness, reliability, and precision of all
representational purposes within the range of personal and professional
experience and scope of responsibilities. Can serve as an informal interpreter in a
range of unpredictable circumstances. Can perform extensive, sophisticated
language tasks, encompassing most matters of interest to well-educated native
speakers, including tasks which do not bear directly on a professional specialty.
Examples: Can discuss in detail concepts which are fundamentally different from
those of the target culture and make those concepts clear and accessible to the
native speaker. Similarly, the individual can understand the details and
ramifications of concepts that are culturally or conceptually different from his/her
own. Can set the tone of interpersonal official, semi-official, and non-professional
verbal exchanges with a representative range of native speakers (in a range of
varied audiences, purposes, tasks, and settings). Can play an effective role among
native speakers in such contexts as conferences, lectures, and debates on matters
of disagreement. Can advocate a position at length, both formally and in chance
encounters, using sophisticated verbal strategies. Can understand and reliably
produce shifts of both subject matter and tone. Can understand native speakers of

Format:
NUMBER_F(2)
Note:
The following proficiency level descriptions characterize written language use. Each of the
six "base levels" (coded 00, 10, 20, 30, 40, and 50) implies control of any previous "base
level's" functions and accuracy. The "plus level" designation (coded 06, 16, 26, etc.) will be
assigned when proficiency substantially exceeds one base skill level and does not fully meet
the criteria for the next "base level." The "plus level" descriptions are therefore
supplementary to the "base level" descriptions.
A skill level is assigned to a person through an authorized language examination. Examiners
assign a level on a variety of performance criteria exemplified in the descriptive statements.
Therefore, the examples given here illustrate, but do not exhaustively describe, either the
skills a person may possess or situations in which he/she may function effectively.
Statements describing accuracy refer to typical stages in the development of competence in
the most commonly taught languages in formal training programs. In other languages,
emerging competence parallels these characterizations, but often with different details.
Unless otherwise specified, the term "native writer" refers to native writers of a standard
dialect.
"Well-educated," in the context of these proficiency descriptions, does not necessarily imply
formal higher education. However, in cultures where formal higher education is common, the
language-use abilities of persons who have had such education is considered the standard.
That is, such a person meets contemporary expectations for the formal, careful style of the
language, as well as range of less formal varieties of the language.

control of elementary vocabulary and some control of basic syntactic patterns but
major errors still occur when expressing more complex thoughts. Dictionary
usage may still yield incorrect vocabulary or forms, although the individual can
use a dictionary to advantage to express simple ideas. Generally, cannot use basic
cohesive elements of discourse to advantage (such as relative constructions,

Death in the line of Duty
By memorandum dated June 14, 2013, OPM Director Elaine Kaplan notified Heads of Executive
Departments and Agencies, Chief Human Capital Officers (CHCO) and
Human Resources Directors that a new nature of action code would be established effective
October 1, 2013, enabling agencies to begin documenting deaths occurring in the line of duty.
Consistent with guidance in The Civilian Service Recognition Act of 2011 (Pub. Law 112-73), a
death in the line of duty results when the deceased employee was a victim of a criminal act, an
act of terrorism, a natural disaster, or other circumstances as determined by the President.
Though new nature of action code “354/Death in the Line of Duty” is required for said actions
that are effective on or after October 1, 2013, agencies’ payroll providers will not be required to
begin reporting such to Enterprise Human Resource Integration (EHRI) until January 2014.
Guidance instructing on the use of new NOAC/354 will be added to this Guide in an upcoming
Update.
