Statement of Purpose / Fiscal Impact

Statement of Purpose

The Soil Conservation Commission is responsible for programs that provide low interest loans to landowners who implement qualified conservation practices. A new software program is needed as soon as possible to track the Resource Conservation and Rangeland Development Program (RCRDP) loans and the Clean Water State Revolving Fund (CWSRF) loans. The software must calculate loan amounts, principal payments, interest, late interest, prepayments, early payoffs and other intricacies of a loan program. Unfortunately, the current agency-developed program is error prone, time intensive, and not secure from internal tampering. The new software would allow a limited number of end users to access the program. This ability is critical to ensure adequate checks and balances are in place.



Fiscal Note

This fiscal year 2005 supplemental appropriation includes $22,000 in one-time funding from the Resource Conservation and Rangeland Development Fund to purchase Nortridge loan software including one year of online support.
