Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) Assessment of Sponsor Tiering Determination IDIQ Contract

Contract # AG-3198-C-14-0002

Period of Performance: 2/14/2014 – 10/31/2016

In February 2014, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) agency awarded Optimal Solutions Group, LLC (Optimal), with an indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract with one (1) base year and four (4) option years (Contract # AG-3198-C-14-0002). Under this IDIQ, services Optimal may bid on include conducting an assessment that provides for annual estimates of the number of family day care homes (FDCHs) misclassified by sponsoring agencies into the wrong tier, and the resulting erroneous payments for meals and snacks reimbursed at the wrong rate. The assessment does not attempt to measure other types of erroneous payments in the CACFP, such as meal-claiming errors by FDCHs.
