Posted July 15, 2022 – ERS is in full implementation for contracts let on or after October 1, 2021. District Materials and Research Office Earthwork personnel are conducting project based ERS training for Plot creation and maintenance, project
gauges, ERS Sample Life Cycle, PA Plot Review and ERS sample review. ERS Manuals and training videos are posted below in the Training Section of this page right after the link to the MAC training environment. If you would like access to the
training environment, contact your local MAC District Application Coordinator or an SMO system administrator. If you are wondering about some of the details of the implementation, the FAQs is a good place to start.
