The U. S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has implemented some changes that must be reflected in the bid procedures, documents and contracts when working with a food service management company (FSMC) . This requires all schools that contract with a FSMC to go out to bid using the new documents and meeting the regulatory requirements. All contract materials, RFP/IFB, Contracts, and Renewals must be reviewed and approved by the Agency prior to execution of the documents. The RFP/IFB and Contract are templates that will show track changes. This is to aid the review and approval process. Revised procedures, documents and guidance are posted below.
FSMC Contract Renewal Documents
Both documents must be completed and submitted to the Agency.
