Division of Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation (DEEOIC)

OWCP Imaging System

In June 2013, the Division of Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation (DEEOIC) began piloting a new imaging system, the OWCP Imaging System (OIS). OIS is a system which enables DEEOIC staff to view electronic images of paper case file materials. The Cleveland district office and Cleveland Final Adjudication Branch piloted OIS from June 17, 2013 through December 6, 2013 to evaluate and use the system and for imaging DEEOIC records. DEEOIC’s ultimate goal, to implement a program-wide imaging program was achieved on the following dates:

  • Cleveland district office & Cleveland FAB; National Office (NO) and NO FAB - December 9, 2013
  • Denver district office & Denver FAB - January 6, 2014
  • Jacksonville district office & Jacksonville FAB - January 27, 2014
  • Seattle district office & Seattle FAB - February 10, 2014

DEEOIC considers the implementation of OIS as having several distinct advantages:

  • Allows for employee remote access to electronic case records
  • Enhances customer service support
  • Reduces the need to physically handle paper case files
  • Facilitates better organization and access of claim records
  • Reduces Personally Identifiable Information (PII) violations due to lost or damaged packaging
  • Reduces the logistical costs of storage and maintenance of paper files
  • Decreases costs associated with shipping case files
  • Facilitates continuity of operations during emergencies and other disruptive events

All claim forms and pertinent documentation should now be submitted to our central mailroom address listed below:
