Farmers and ranchers are being reminded when you work with USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) or Farm Service Agency (FSA), you can sign and share documents online with just a few clicks. By using Box or OneSpan, producers can digitally complete business transactions without leaving their homes or agricultural operations. Both services are free, secure and available for multiple NRCS and FSA programs.
Box and OneSpan are both optional services for customers interested in improved efficiency in signing and sharing documents with USDA, and they do not replace existing systems using eAuthentication for digital signature. Instead, these tools provide additional digital options for producers to use when conducting business with NRCS or FSA.
USDA Service Center staff are available to help you get started with through a few simple steps. Contact your local USDA Service Center and let the staff know you’re interested in signing and sharing documents through these new features. Or for more information go to the NRCS website, nrcs.usda.gov.
