ExamNet Measured Self Inventory (MSI) Program Rollout
The Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (MDARD) has rolled out a Measured Self Inventory (MSI) program which utilizes ExamNet software for Licensed Grain Dealers. This program provides an industry-wide gain in regulatory efficiency and was selected as one of Governor Snyder's innovation projects.
Measured Self Inventory is useful to dealers for managing and identifying trends in grain quality, reconciling inter-company transfers, identifying grain theft, and satisfying lenders. Regulators can save more than half of their on-site time spent on audits each year through spot-checks and audits of dealer records conducted by MDARD staff. Click here for the ExamNet Rollout.
