As Val and I have traveled around to employee association meetings and county offices we consistently hear about the need for the FSA handbooks to be up to date. We agree and consequently have directed our team in DC to get all handbooks current. Attached is a spreadsheet with most of the FSA handbooks and the expected time when they will be brought current.
Until all the updates are finished we will be providing this report monthly. Please distribute this report within your organizations. If there are any questions, the contacts are:
- Farm Programs: Jane Ray
- Finance and Budget: Bob McGrath and Michelle Furchak
- Management: John Blanchard
We appreciate your patience and look forward to our continued collaboration to make FSA the best place to work!
