FFAVORS News and Information
Maintenance Notice: FFAVORS has a scheduled maintenance window each Sunday from 4:00 PM through 2:00 AM CT. The site may be unavailable for periods during this time.
Note: As of July 1, 2014 the FFAVORS system will only accept Funding Source of 'Fed' for deliveries starting in July 2014.
Entitlement dollars will be the only funds available for use within the FFAVORS application.
This decision was outlined in FNS Policy memo SP 25-2014; FD 133-2014.
The FFAVORS Web ordering system was transitioned to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and went live as of August 14, 2012. Even though the system’s location has changed, your day to day contacts will remain with your current DoD Account Managers, DoD Field Reps, and/or DoD Contracting Specialist.
IDs and Passwords: The ID and password required to access FFAVORS Web is referred to as an 'Account'. Accounts are administered by the USDA eAuthentication team and are used to access USDA web applications. Individuals only require one 'Account' to access multiple USDA web applications. FFAVORS Web users who also access the Web Based Supply Chain Management System (WBSCM) can use the same account level I (ID and Password) for both.
For initial access to FFAVORS Web, your DoD contact will establish a user profile for each new user within FFAVORS. This will generate an email notification to the user with step by step instructions on how to create the eAuthentication account.
The eAuthentication level I account will prompt the user to change the password every 180 days.
To learn more about eAuthentication accounts, you can visit their web site: https://www.eauth.usda.gov/MainPages/index.aspx
If you have problems accessing FFAVORS or do not know your current DoD Account Manager, DoD Field Rep, and/or DoD Contracting Specialist, please contact the FFAVORS help desk at: FFAVORS@fns.usda.gov.
