This website functions to document and assist official EXPO users in the United States of America. The Exportable QCEW system (EXPO) is a series of computer programs and data files designed to efficiently process employment and wage data and to produce all QCEW program deliverables. The system was developed by the Utah Department of Workforce Services under the direction of the BLS. It consists of various data files, which are accessed by CICS (Customer Information Communication Systems) screens, along with numerous batch programs configured to operate in over 50 batch jobs. Access to the U-I system is available through State-developed extracts. When combined with the Windows-based (WIN) program, it covers all 53 agencies (the 50 States, the District of Columbia (DC), Puerto Rico (PR) and the U.S. Virgin Islands (VI)). Eventually, the EXPO and WIN programs will be replaced by the QUEST (Quarterly Employment and Wages States) System; it is slated to be released in 2019, but a budget shortfall may make it take longer. As it stands now, it is difficult to say which decade it will be done in.
