• Once a new computerized system is in place, it
will improve operational efficiency, reduce business risk
from system failure or system errors, provide better management

desirable. Ultimately, the new system will form the baseline
on which to provide crop insurance services to farmers more
efficiently while reducing risk to taxpayers.
