Did you know?
In the 2000's, NASCOE established the Programs committee.  Some of the changes that have occurred because of NASCOE are:
- IB 10403 CARS Enhancements which included adding a bulk copy feature for plant dates, added a 'today' button, added radio button for bulk revisions, and unreported quantities or balance for fields/subfields.
- Being able to use a SCIMS search in Financial Inquiries versus only being able to search by TIN.

The Programs and Negotiations Committee works hard on your behalf. Recently, we have been negotiating a new process of how to share our submissions with WDC. As we move forward with our new digital platform, which manages our great submissions we receive from the field, we are excited to see this platform flourish. 

Our goal for this new platform is to allow for more efficient tracking between both, NASCOE and WDC staff, as well as more timely responses and resolutions. This newly designed platform should also allow for greater continuity with our submission items when we experience future leadership changes. 

Please click on the following link to read through the responses to items we negotiated, in person, with WDC this past May. You will notice negotiations from past years that were brought to the table again, as well as 2022. 

Thank you,
Christa Kraatz & Jennie Budahl
Programs & Negotiations Co-Chairs

On another note, you may have recently noticed Information Bulletin 10975 credited NASCOE with a software suggestion to add a link to the COC Digital Local Administrative Area (LAA) Boundary Locator. Your support of NASCOE and your suggestions help make improvements that benefit us on a daily basis!

Are you tired of working harder and not smarter?

If you have suggestions or idea that you think would improve our program delivery, we would love to hear from you!

Every day we work with software and agricultural programs.  We all have identified problems or issues that slow us down and keep challenged on a daily basis.  It’s time to share those ideas with our Washington D.C. employees and programmers!  Let them know what you like and dislike, what is working and what is not working.  Changes will not happen without your input.  All we can do is try.

Our Midwest Area Executives challenge each state in the Midwest Area to submit suggestions on software and program improvement that can lead to better efficiency. NASCOE looks at these and submits them for consideration! Imagine making a suggestion that gets implemented nationwide! Let’s show the Midwest Area that Wisconsin has some great ideas.  All you have to do is to go to Programs & Submissions on the NASCOE website and complete the online submission process.

There is a lot of great information regarding programs and submissions on the NASCOE page. Head over to learn all about what NASCOE does for us to make our jobs easier.
