What kind of computer do I need to run software for NFIRS?
The informational sheet, Minimum Computer Requirements, explains the minimum requirements that are needed for vendor software and for the Federal Data Entry Tool. Software will run on computers meeting these requirements but it may be slow. It would be better if the computer exceeded these requirements if possible.
Where do I find software for NFIRS?
