Approved Florida Developed Engineering Software

For the approved list of Florida NRCS developed engineering engineering software for use in Florida go to the Electronic Field Office Technical Guide -  eFOTG for Florida Section IV, C. Tools, Florida Engineering Computer Programs.  This list is dynamic and will be updated as existing software is revised and new software is added to the list.  Engineering computer software, developed by Florida NRCS employees and used by NRCS employees, not on the approved list should be sent to the State Conservation Engineer (SCE) for review and approval.  The use of any engineering software not on the approved state list or is discouraged, but will be acceptable provided the results are checked by an approved method.

Non-NRCS employees can obtain NRCS software from: NRCS Engineering Tools

Use of Engineering Software

Engineering software is a tool that can be used in the planning, design, and certification of conservation practices and can vastly increase the employee's productivity and quality of work.  However, individuals using engineering computer software should have a working knowledge of the software and know the software's limitations prior to using it.  Use of engineering software for specific jobs is the responsibility of the user and is subject to the individual's engineering job approval authority.  Users of engineering software should not "blindly" accept the answers, but should know if the results are appropriate results for the situation.  Training in use of the approved engineering software should be requested through appropriate channels.

Errors found in the approved engineering software and/or recommendations for improving the software should be sent to the SCE Jesse.Wilson@fl.usda.gov.
