The Transmittal of the Questions and Answers on the Computation of the Direct Certification Performance Rate with the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) (SP 54-2013) memorandum provides detailed information pertaining to the performance measures, data elements, and reporting process for the FNS-742 (School Food Authority (SFA) Verification Collection Report) and the FNS-834 (State Agency (NSLP/SNAP) Direct Certification Rate Data Element Report). This memorandum will provide further guidance for State agencies not able to meet the requirement for identifying SNAP directly certified students separately from other program categories.  It also provides reporting clarifications on SNAP data matches for provision schools in a non-base year and for State agencies with Local Educational Agencies (LEAs) participating in the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP).
