Survey Supply and Procurement Program

There is continual progress being made in the development of survey supplies. To make certain that we are sourcing the most effective survey supplies, we want to improve product descriptions prior to purchasing. Specifically, we are seeking suggestions to improve the construction or specifications of the products described in documents below. We are not seeking to purchase these products at this time. Providing feedback does constitute an advantage in future solicitations. 

Please send suggested improvements relating to construction or specifications of the supplies listed below to, SSPP@aphis.usda.gov.   Please reference the product name listed below when providing feedback.
