Approved Florida-Developed Engineering Software
For the approved list of Florida NRCS engineering software go to the Electronic Field Office Technical Guide - eFOTG for Florida Section IV, C. Tools, Florida Engineering Computer Programs. This list is dynamic and is updated as software is revised and new software is added. 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 for review and approval. The use of engineering software not on the approved state list is discouraged, but will be acceptable provided the results are checked by an approved method.

Use of Engineering Software
Engineering software is a tool that can be used in the planning, design and certification of conservation practices and can increase the productivity and quality of work. Training in use of the approved engineering software should be requested through appropriate channels.
