Child Nutrition Programs
Periodically, we receive questions concerning the procurement requirements of 7 CFR Parts 3016 and 3019 and certain procurement procedures used by public and nonprofit school food authorities (SFAs). Attached are a number of these recent questions and their corresponding answers.
Please share this information your SFAs. We also encourage each SFA to share this information with their legal counsel and recommend you share this information with the chief state legal official.
