This memorandum shares newly developed resources intended to promote reporting efficiency. The attached “Reporting Timeline” and “Reporting Table” were developed to assist with tracking the diverse reports required to be submitted by state agencies to the Food and Nutrition Services (FNS) throughout the fiscal year.

These resources reflect key management information such as due dates, reporting frequency and method of submission of common reports required to be submitted by operators of the FNS child nutrition programs. These are not all-inclusive; additional reports may be required.

These resources are meant to complement current policies and reporting requirements; they do not supersede or replace existing guidance. Occasionally requirements and policies will be revised; FNS will update and distribute these reporting documents periodically to reflect those revisions.

State agencies should direct questions to their appropriate FNS regional office.
