Last Published: 01/13/2015

This memorandum responds to a number of recent questions and requests to provide clarifying guidance to State agencies and Child Nutrition Program (CNP) operators, including the National School Lunch Program, School Breakfast Program, Child and Adult Care Food Program, and Summer Food Service Program, regarding the expectation and enforcement of ethical conduct by their employees engaged in procurement of Program goods and service. State agencies and CNP operators are reminded that 7 CFR 3016.36(b)(3) and 3019.42, as applicable, currently require entities receiving Federal funds to develop and implement a written code of conduct designed to govern the performance of employees engaged in procurement.
