NASCOE Program Submission Response: Acreage Reporting in CARS

ISSUE:

I absolutely love the auto populated initials on the 578, but I had an incident this morning where my producer spilled his Dr. Pepper on the farm folder after it was signed. I went in to the software to print a new 578 to resign the one that took place of the destroyed copy. When I went to print without revising, it put my initials down as a revision.

FACTS:

All revisions have to be documented in the COC minutes according to 2-CP. When initials are placed on a 578 as a revision, it will make it look like an erroneous revision.

SOLUTION:

Adjust the CARS software to read if a field was truly revised or if it is just a reprint.

WDC Response:

I will add this item to the list of IT enhancements for discussion and consideration.
