USDA/FNS RIN: 0584-AD84 Publication ID: Fall 2009 
Title: Simplified Cost Accounting and Other Actions To Reduce Paperwork in the Summer Food Service Program 
Abstract: Section 738 of the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2008, (Pub. L. 110-161), extends simplified cost accounting procedures to Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) sponsors in all States. Beginning on January 1, 2008, sponsors receive the maximum rates of reimbursement for the eligible meals they serve. The Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) proposes to amend 7 CFR part 225 to eliminate the program assistance requirements that no longer apply and to implement a number of other actions that would further streamline SFSP administration. This rulemaking proposes to: (1) Eliminate the cost comparison requirements for determining payments to Summer Food Service Program sponsors; (2) update the threshold for small purchases in SFSP to align with the threshold set forth in 7 CFR parts 3016 and 3019; (3) allow State agencies to conduct compliance reviews of schools participating in both the NSLP and SFSP at the same frequency; and (4) clarify that sponsors must have administrative oversight at approved meal service sites. These proposed actions would reduce paperwork and improve efficiency while ensuring high quality administrative oversight and meal service. FNS expects comments from the public, especially recommendations from State agencies and sponsors that already have operational experience participating under simplified cost accounting procedures. However, since these proposed procedures constitute a significant reduction in administrative workload and paperwork burden, FNS does not anticipate that the comments will be negative in nature. The estimated costs of additional meals through implementation of this rule range from $5.8 million in fiscal year 2009 to $6.9 million in 2012. (08-004)
