USDA Issues Organic Integrity Database Solicitation

DataGraphicThe Agriculture Department is seeking information from industry on a database that USDA wants to protect the department’s organic seal integrity.

USDA issued a solicitation on Monday for a web-based database of certified organic operations that contains information relevant to the organic industry and public.

The department wants the database to help protect supply chain transparency, further market visibility for organic operations and prevent fraud.

The potential contractor must design a database that incorporates all elements in the current NOP list of certified organic operations, monitors organic operations, provides structured fields for products and commodities, helps certifying agents update data and maps an operation’s location.

USDA asks interested companies to develop the database with agile processes and showcase either Microsoft CRM or .NET development experience.
