Usda National Processing Agreement

Processor schedules and finished product data summaries (SEPDS) after the school year meet the requirements set out in the national processing agreement. The 2017, 2018 and 2019 SEPDS school year is available to state sales agencies and processors on the USDA Foods National Processing Community PartnerWeb. To request registration of the site, send an email to In recognizing this change in the traditional distribution and control structure, we are waiving our waiver of 7 CFR 250.30 (t) from waiving the application of 7 CFR 250.13 (c) and 250.30 (c) (4) (viii) (B) to reflect “changes to the improvement of government processing of donated foods.” On behalf of the DAs participating in the NMPA, FNS will be responsible for setting up and holding a warranty instrument to protect the total value of all DFs involved in a given processor. The title of this OF is transferred from FNS to the DA when the merchandise in the final product reaches its final destination, whether it is a warehouse marked DA or the destination set by an RA. Since the waiver only covers treatment activities pursued under the NMPA, the non-participating DA remains responsible for the DF in accordance with the program`s rules. The NMPA demonstration project has made changes to traditional distribution and control of DF, as described in the NSF regulations. Traditionally, DF`s delivery goal is the processor`s other plant, as chosen by DA. However, under the NMPA, the delivery location is chosen by FNS, as FNS chooses the additional transformer and, on behalf of the participating DA, concludes an agreement on the transformation of DF into desired finished products. In practice, therefore, FNS states that “the objective of delivering this final product under the NMPA. The CEs procure USDA Foods for further transformation through these auction procedures: in addition to multi-state processors with national processing agreements, USDA includes state-owned food processors that are exclusively state-owned and operate in the state and have an agreement with their national sales agency.

For more information, please contact your national sales agency. Current USDA food publishers working on an NPA can contact for more information. Beginning in 2000, the Department of Agriculture (USDA) launched a demonstration project known as the National Master Processing Agreements (NMPA), in which the USDA Food and Nutrition Service organizes the national processing of state-sponsored food (DF). The DF, which is processed under the NMPA, is made available to national distribution agencies (DA) for distribution to eligible recipient agencies (RA). A participating DA signs a National Participation Agreement (SPA) with an approved processor and FNS then arranges the delivery of the DF to the processor to ensure that the DA concerned receives its final product from that processor. The following lists include NPA-approved processors for each school year: USDA Foods in Schools supports local food programs and U.S. agricultural producers by purchasing 100% of U.S. grown food and products for use by schools and institutions. USDA Foods is available for infant nutrition programs in three ways: Direct Delivery, USDA Foods Processing and USDA DoD Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program. To provide inexpensive and nutritious meals to millions of Texans, the company (also known as a processor) must return the full value of USDA Food, which is included in the final product.

TDA allows contractors to use one of the following value pass options: There are restrictions on the use of each option, including dollar amounts, so please check all federal, national and local laws with your purchasing or business department before choosing a method.
