United States Department of Agriculture Forest Service Enterprise Program

Enterprise Technical Services


We are experts in environmental compliance and can work with your biologists and hydrologists to complete NEPA documents, permits, and other regulatory requirements.

We can provide the technical design and contract preparation help to make your aquatic organism passage project a success. You know your resources and conservation goals; we can provide the technical expertise to support your interdisciplinary team from project design through contract administration.

Enterprise Technical Services provides Contracting Offier's Representatives (COR) and construction inspectors in al Forest Service National Construction Certifcation Program (NCCP) categories.

At Enterprise Technical Services we recognize the value of both the natural and built environment. We are experts at meeting the needs of people without comprising the integrity of surrounding ecosystems.

Our civil engineers and engineering technicians specialize in preparing designs and developing contracts for small-scale capital improvement and maintenance projects and completing annual operations inspections that require a specific skill set or certification. We are here to help you when you need to delegate.

First let me say that I am a huge supporter of the enterprise team concept in the Forest Service.  I believe that the demand for enterprise teams will greatly increase in the near future.  It is impossible even for a large forest such as the Humboldt-Toiyabe NF to maintain a pool of employees with all the skills we need to accomplish specific projects. We routinely rely on enterprise teams to help us accomplish short term projects" - Stephanie Phillips - Deputy Forest Supervisor Humboldt-Toiyabe National Recreation Area
