The Integrated Food Management System replaces the legacy, Automated Inventory System. IFMS consolidates food distribution transactions into a seamless, easy-to-use cloud-based platform.
FNS requires that inventories do not exceed a six-month supply of any USDA Foods without approval from FNS. Per 7 CFR 250.17(a), state agencies administering TEFAP are required to use Form FNS-155, Inventory Management Register, to report any food items in state and state-contracted warehouses that exceed six months of inventory.
The ITO/state agency must submit Form FNS-152, Monthly Distribution of Donated Foods to Family Units, that documents the data obtained in the physical inventory with the perpetual inventory record. Shortages must be reported to the appropriate FNS regional office.
Form FNS-674 is used to request access to the USDA Food Program Reporting System (FPRS).
Join us for this webinar to hear from three state and local agencies who will talk about the things they are doing to prepare for the changes to the CSFP Food Package. USDA staff will also address some common questions about the enhanced food package.
This webinar provided an overview of the FDPIR Inventory Calculator and the FDPIR inventory monitoring process and discussed how to complete an inventory calculator, how to analyze the calculator results, and how the inventory calculator can help with order monitoring and planning.

This memorandum is meant to provide clarification and guidance on policies and procedures for donated food storage and distribution as they relate to product dating.

State agencies must exercise diligence to ensure that TEFAP food inventories are managed effectively, efficiently, and without waste. The purpose of this policy memorandum is to provide state agencies with the direction and guidance necessary in maintaining proper inventory levels of USDA Foods for TEFAP, including the estimation of monthly utilization rates for new or bonus USDA Foods for which there are no historical usage records.
