Last November, the Office of Personnel Management proposed eliminating various occupation categories due to have 25 or fewer employees in them. OPM said that the work can be reclassified into other existing categories.

Agencies were invited to submit comments on the proposal and had until January 6, 2017 to do so.

Based on the comments received, OPM has released the list of occupations that will be cancelled. The full list is included in a copy of the announcement below.

OPM said that reclassification actions must be completed within 12 months, and these occupational series will be dropped from the pay tables on March 1, 2018.
