Flexibility for the Administrative Review Cycle Requirement

In School Year 2013-2014, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food and Nutrition Service introduced the unified Administrative Review and a 3-year review cycle (7 CFR 210.18). Since then, FNS has received feedback about the difficulties of the shorter review cycle, both for the state agencies conducting the reviews, and for School Food Authorities (SFAs) preparing for and responding to reviews.
