Soil Business Area Analysis Group

The Soil Business Area Analysis Group (SBAAG) acts as a forum to analyze and facilitate the integration of technical and operational business processes into the National Cooperative Soil Survey Program. This includes the coordination with National Centers in order to assure that research, development, delivery, and marketing of soil survey products and services follow an overall system plan. The objective of the group is to improve the quality and delivery of soil information and the process by which that information is collected, managed, and presented.

SBAAG provides recommendations to the National Soil Science Division leadership on all issues related to the soil survey business area.

SBAAG accepts ideas, thoughts, or issues relating to soil survey business functions from any level within the National Cooperative Soil Survey. Items should be passed to the appropriate state soil scientist for submission to the SBAAG chair, Jon Hempel.

SBAAG maintains a SharePoint site at https://nrcs.sc.egov.usda.gov/ssra/sbaag/default.aspx that includes information on all SBAAG business analysis projects. The SharePoint is open to anyone on the NRCS domain.
