The purpose of the Performance Reporting System (PRS) is to ensure that each state agency and project area is operating the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) in accordance with the requirements of the Food and Nutrition Act of 2008 (the Act) (7 USC 2011, et seq.), as amended, and corresponding program regulations. Under Section 11 of the Act (7 USC 2020), state agencies must maintain necessary records to ascertain that SNAP is operating in compliance with the Act and regulations and must make these records available to the Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) for inspection and audit.
Per Title 7, Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 275, each state agency is required to submit one Management Evaluation (ME) review schedule every one, two, or three years, depending on the project area make-up of the state, unless the state receives approval for an alternative Management Evaluation review schedule.
Under 7 CFR part 275, each state must establish a system for analysis and evaluation of all data available to the state. Data analysis and evaluation is an ongoing process that facilitates the development of effective and prompt corrective action.
Under 7 CFR part 275, state agencies must prepare a corrective action plan (CAP) addressing identified deficiencies. The state agencies must develop a system for monitoring and evaluating corrective action and submit CAP updates, as necessary.
