The objective of this study is to review and document School Food Authority (SFA), state National School Lunch Program, and School Breakfast Program Management Information Systems, to show FNS how data systems are used beyond fulfilling their reporting requirements.

IMPAQ is performing an “as is” review, which will focus on school meal program management data collected or generated at the SFA or state agency levels but not reported to FNS on any of their program forms. We will collect the data from vendor presentations, interviews, and surveys of state and SFA administrators.

Our team includes senior researchers and analysts with expertise in school meals policy, management information systems, and survey design and management.
