A Technical Service Provider (TSP) is an individual, private business, nonprofit organization, or public agency outside of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) that help agricultural producers apply conservation practices on their land. These Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) certified professionals provide for convenient access to technical services, quality work, and professional one-on-one technical assistance to landowners or producers who participate in USDA conservation programs. TSPs can:
Develop conservation plans and perform selected compliance studies
Plan, design, and lay out conservation practices
Check out completed conservation practices
The National TSP website
The National TSP websitecontains the most up-to-date documents, guidance, and information for and about TSPs. Refer to this website for any questions about TSPs, as TechReg will no longer contain updated TSP guidance. TechReg will house the TSP registry. TSP applicants can access their application through both the National TSP website and TechReg.
