SUMMARY. A general method for constructing $E(f_{NOD})$-optimal mixed-level supersaturated designs possessing the equal occurrence property is introduced. The method, which gives promising results, is based on new techniques for the construction of supplementary difference sets.

AMS (2000) subject classification. Primary 62K10, 62K15; secondary 05B20.

Key words and phrases. Resolvable design, supersaturated design, supplementary difference sets, uniform design.
