In 2004, the President signed P.L 108-498, a bill that provides independent authority beginning October 1, 2004, for CRP funds to be used for technical assistance to implement the program. This legislation authorizes FSA to cooperate with and solicit technical service(s) from various Federal agencies, local governments, nongovernmental organizations, and individuals in order to carry out the agency?s roles, responsibilities, and further the conservation mission of FSA on private land(s) enrolled in CRP. C.2.2. FSA will now be required to maintain, administer, and monitor technical assistance contracts for CRP. Currently, CRP participants may select technical assistance from a list of individuals certified as Technical Service Providers (TSP?s) and/or the Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS). TSP?s are selected and certified as acceptable providers for use by NRCS. The goal of this training is to increase FSA staff knowledge of the technical assistance needed in the development of CRP continuous sign-up conservation plans and to oversee contract implementation. FSA will use this training to develop and/or provide quality control reviews of TSP contracts for CRP continuous sign-up technical assistance. C.2.3.
