OMB Control Number: 0584–NEW. Summary of Collection: The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) ensures that low-income children continue to receive nutritious meals when school is not in session and they do not have access to free or low-cost meals through the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs. The Improper Payments Elimination and Recovery Act of 2010 (Pub. L. 111–204) and the Improper Payments Elimination and Recovery Improvement Act of 2012 (Pub. L. 112–248) require Federal agencies to review programs and activities every three years to identify those that may be vulnerable to significant improper payments. Previous assessments have shown that the SFSP is at a low risk for improper payments but recent efforts to address summer food insecurity through improving access to SFSP have increased program expenditures, which may lead to increased risk of improper payments. SFSP also presents unique challenges to ensuring program integrity and measuring improper payments. FNS is conducting the Summer Food Service Program Integrity Study to obtain information about the administration and oversight of the SFSP and to identify potential barriers to ensuring the integrity and effective management of the SFSP. Need and Use of the Information: This study will collect data from State Child Nutrition Agency directors, State Agency key staff, local SFSP sponsor directors, sponsor key staff, and SFSP site supervisors, and business SFSP sponsor directors, sponsor key staff, and SFSP site supervisors using web-based surveys and telephone interviews. FNS will use the data to describe how State agencies, sponsors, and sites monitor the SFSP and ensure program integrity, to develop resources, training, and technical assistance, and to shape future efforts to estimate improper payment rates in the SFSP.
