The following review tools are provided as a convenience to FNS regional office and state agency reviewers for use with “Conducting Program Access Reviews at Local Food Stamp Offices: A Guide for FNS Regional Offices, For Adaptation by State Agencies.” Several of these tools are adapted from formats developed by FNS regional offices. Others are updated versions of the tools provided with the original August 2000 PAR guide. Although these review tools were developed carefully to incorporate all of the PAR review elements described in this guidance, use of these review tools is optional. FNSROs and state agencies will need to adapt the tools as necessary to fit the particular circumstances of local offices being reviewed.
