U — SFSP Review Contractors – Addendum #1. SOL RFP 540 1600000167 version 2 DUE 12/22/2015 Valerie Blade-Thomas, Email: Valerie.Blade-Thomas@education.ky.gov Phone: (502) 564-2351; Website: https://emars.ky.gov/webapp/vssonline/AltSelfServic Purpose and Background: The Kentucky Department of Education, Division of School and Community Nutrition (SCN) ( http://education.ky.gov/federal/SCN) is responsible for administering the Child Nutrition Programs for the United States Department of Agriculture. SCN seeks to obtain the services of a professional organization to assist the State Agency in the area of oversight for the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP), to ensure State Agency (SA) compliance. Various types of sponsors participate in the program, which includes private schools, public schools, camps, and government organizations. Approximately 150 sponsors receive technical assistance, training and reimbursement of approximately $6 million annually in program expenditures. Scope of Work: The Vendor s primary responsibility shall be to assist with the programmatic review process. The SFSP requires a full set of professional services to conduct the programmatic reviews- sponsor and, potentially, site reviews. The technical assistance component includes, but is not limited to, conducting reviews efficiently, sharing best practices, and recommendations and assistance with training, workflow processes and administrative tasks. Reviews shall be conducted using an electronic review form incorporated within the claim and application agreement system, which is the Child Nutrition Information and Payment System (CNIPS) that was developed by the Colyar Consulting Group. The compliance module consists of a web component and a laptop component. In the web component, the sponsor reviews are set up, corrective action findings after the review are displayed for the sponsor to review and respond and the tracking of the reviews are performed. The laptop component software is installed on the reviewer s laptop computer. The reviewer then selects the sponsor (and site(s)) to review and then downloads the information onto their laptop. The laptop component is separated by sponsor and site, with a question set for each to perform the programmatic review. The review forms contain a series of option buttons, calculation worksheets and text boxes depending on the nature of the question. If a finding is made, then the reviewer notes the nature of the issue. After the review is completed, then it is uploaded into the web component of the compliance module. The review is then finalized by SCN for the sponsor to submit any corrective action required by the State Agency. The SFSP compliance review module was first utilized in June 2013. Licensing for using the CNIPS review compliance software will be available to the selected vendor at no cost and access to the web component shall be provided as well by SCN. Beginning in 2013 and thereafter all compliance reviews shall be conducted using the CNIPS compliance review software. The SFSP Compliance reviews shall be done beginning in May and concluding in August. The Vendor shall be responsible for completing both the site and sponsor reviews as determined by the State Agency. SCN staff may assist at times with the SFSP site and sponsor reviews depending on their availability. The Vendor shall develop recommended corrective actions to address any findings to include in the Corrective Action Plan. The final Corrective Action Plan and its resolution with the sponsor shall be the responsibility of SCN. The Vendor shall be expected to conduct a full review from planning, conducting and completing the review, including the collection of supporting documentation as needed, up through the submission of findings for the Corrective Action Plan. SCN shall review and approve the review, requesting additional information and clarifications as necessary. SCN will also be responsible for the corrective action plans and associated work thereafter but may require limited assistance from the Vendor. The Vendor will be required to attend meetings in the Frankfort office as well as travel to the sponsor and site locations throughout the state for SFSP reviews. This notice is provided by the Kentucky Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC). The information is believed to be correct, but should be verified with the issuing agency/organization.
