In 2003, One Call Systems International (OCSI) elected to become part
of the Common Ground Alliance within the existing CGA committee
structure. With the OCSI and CGA missions closely aligned, the CGA
Board of Directors voted to approve OCSI as an affiliated CGA
committee. OCSI first met as a CGA committee in December 2003; and
since that time, the committee has continued to grow to over 60
active participants and 175 members.
The purpose of One-Call Systems
International (OCSI) is to promote facility damage prevention and
infrastructure protection through education, guidance and assistance to
one call centers internationally. Although the committee
focuses on the one call center, the group operates like other
CGA committees and encourages participation from all CGA
stakeholders. The OCSI committee has multiple standing
subcommittees including a regional contact subcommittee, education
subcommittee, and data collection subcommittee.
One of the primary products of
the OCSI Committee is the OCSI Resource Guide that includes one
call center contacts and state-specific information.
Now available online, you can access the guide by

The committee is currently chaired by Dan
Meiners (Underground Safety Alliance) and Annette Reburn (Alabama
811). To become a member of this committee, contact Erika Lee at
