The NRCS website has new information to help guide agricultural producers through the conservation compliance process. The Five Steps to Meet Conservation Compliance webpage will help producers determine if conservation compliance provisions apply to them as well as how to become and remain compliant. Producers wanting federal crop insurance premium subsidies for the 2016 reinsurance year, which begins July 1, 2015, must be in compliance by June 1, 2015.
NRCS will be using a new Temporary Duty (TDY) travel System – E-Gov Travel Service 2 (ETS2), beginning January 26, 2015. More information is available in our Field Tools community in USDA Connect.
Web Receipt for Service (WebRFS)
Section 12204 of the Agricultural Act of 2014 now requires NRCS, the Farm Service Agency (FSA), and Rural Development (RD) to provide a receipt for service to customers. On December 1, 2014, NRCS discontinued the use of the AD-2088 form and replaced it with WebRFS.
For access to Connect, NRCS employees will need a usda.gov email address and level 2 E-Auth. NRCS partners and affiliates should use the links to NRCS applications on the left of this page or view the Integrated Accountability System. The following documents will also help you learn about Connect.
