Do CCRS Reference "Codes" exist?

Hello. I'm working on a project to add the College and Career Readiness Standards (CCRS) to OER Commons, and I'm looking for information on whether codes (e.g., alphanumeric identifiers) exist for the CCRS. As most of you are likely aware, OER Commons is a repository of open education resources created by and for educators. When a resource is added to the platform, the creator is prompted to align the resource with the applicable standard(s). However, the platform was originally conceived for K12 use, so the standards used on the platform are the Common Core State Standards. For the past few years, we've been asking OER Commons to add the CCRS for adult education. While they appreciated the need, lack of funding and other priorities pushed this request down the list of platform enhancements.
We now have a window of opportunity to add the CCRS to OER Commons, and the first step in the process is to identify whether a table of "codes" identifying each CCR standard exists. We're working from the original PDF of standards, but the only codes referenced in the PDF are the crosswalk to the CCSS. If a database of CCRS codes/identifiers exists, we want to use it rather than create confusion by creating our own identifiers for the CCRS.
Please reply as a comment to this post if you are aware of a database of CCRS codes (identifiers) that we could/should be using. Also, touch base with any questions or comments regarding where I should also check. Thank you!
