11 YOUR COSTS DO NOT DETERMINE YOUR REIMBURSEMENTS REMEMBER…

12 Financial Management Guiding principles: –Is the item or service necessary for operating the CACFP? –Is the amount reasonable? –Is the item or service an allowable CACFP expense?

13 Allowable Costs Operating Costs –Food –Food service labor –Non-food supplies: Paper products (plates, cups, napkins, etc.) Dishes Serving utensils Cleaning products for the kitchen/food service area –Food service equipment

15 Allowable Costs For all costs: –Is it CACFP-related? –Is it primarily for the benefit of participants? –Did I seek prior approval (if needed)? –Did I follow proper procurement procedures? –Did I allocate the cost (if needed)? –Do I have proper documentation?

16 Proper Documentation Procurement documents Itemized receipts or invoices –Delivery slips –Donation records Allocations Payroll records –Time distribution reports Mileage logs

17 Allocations Allocations are needed if the cost: –Benefits allowable and unallowable activities –Benefits both CACFP and other program areas –Benefits CACFP operations in multiple states –For sponsoring organizations: is both administrative and operational Must determine whether a cost is direct or indirect (overhead)

19 Allocations Indirect cost: allocation or rate must be based on a plan approved by the State Agency and is subject to FNS approval Direct cost: –Allocation must be based on use or benefit –Allocation must be pre-approved by the State Agency

20 Labor Allocations Time distribution reports are required if –An allocation is required and –CACFP reimbursements will be used to pay for all or part of the employee’s allowable wages or benefits. Only the share of the wages and benefits associated with CACFP-related labor may be paid with CACFP funds.

21 Labor Allocations Time distribution reports must be: –Done by the employee –Complete Account for all activity (not just CACFP labor) –Filled out after the fact to reflect actual time spent on various duties –Prepared at least monthly –Signed by the employee –Signed by the employee’s supervisor
