The Child Nutrition Reporting Burden Analysis Study was commissioned by the USDA Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) in response to a legislative requirement of House Report 114-531. The study examined challenges faced by state agencies (SAs) and school food authorities (SFAs) related to child nutrition (CN) program administrative and reporting requirements and identifying those that contribute most to the workload for SAs and SFAs that operate CN programs. The overarching objective of the study was to develop a set of considerations for FNS for reducing SA and SFA administrative and reporting burden related to school meals programs.
