Procurement Coach

If you don't want to go it alone, a coach can stay with you from start to finish.  Our procurement coach will set you up with a timeline so you can't miss!

A written Procurement Plan is required by law and will be looked at during your procurement review. What is contained in there is your road map to procurement success! Let us write a procurement plan according to your own specifications and all you have to do is follow it.

Bid Documents and Records Rentention

Administrative Review Support

Menu Review

The Menu Review portion of your Administrative Review can be unnerving with all the daily and weekly requirements that must be met.  Our expert Dietitians at My K12 Resource have passed hundreds of Menu Reviews successfully.  The Menu Review pays for itself by avoiding costly findings.  And imagine the peace of mind when you know your menus are correct before you turn them in to the state.

Income Application Review

Verification is another area of the review where findings are common and it is where some of the most severe fiscal penalties occur. Let us do what your reviewer would do and check a sample of Income Applications before your review and you'll save yourself some sleepless nights.

Production Record Evaulation

Production records are where a State Reviewer will evaluate your practices with a fine tooth comb.  When My K12 Resource evaluates your records first, mistakes can be found and corrected before your review, putting you in a strong position for Zero Findings.

Commodity Support

Commodites 101

USDA Commodities and Commodity Processing both have a language all on their own.  Get up to speed quickly with the terms and what they mean.  We will start at the very beginning of the commodity cycle and teach you the timing of decisions.  You will begin to understand why knowledge is power when it comes to commodities.  What you don't know can cost you.  But what you do know will help you save thousands of dollars per year and help keep you in the black!

Commodity Savings

This one-day training is perfect for the new director, or for a more seasoned director who wants to be sure they are maximizing their commodities. What are the best commodities to divert and why, how to set up for successful distribution, evaluating storage costs and commodity tracking are a few of the topics covered. By the end of the day, you will have an actionable plan.  This training can be done: 

*In person 

*Web-based

*One on One

*Small Group

Planning for Next Year

What if you didn't have to start over every year with making your commodity decisions?  What to divert, to which processors, how much and for what menus?  My K12 Resource can set you up with a commodity template so that you can stay with the decisions that make sense and change the ones that don't.

Food Label Collection

When it comes to Administrative Review, the food label collection is one of the most time-consuming projects.  You may have to put one full-time employee on it until it's done.  Even then, if you are missing one thing, it can mean an expensive finding.  My K12 Resource can do this preparation for you and for a small monthly fee keep it maintained. 

USDA/6 Cent Worksheet

If you have never applied for the 6 cents before and need guidance, we can help.  If your Administrative Review process includes reviewing of the 6 cent worksheet, then we can make sure it's correct before your review.  Either way, we've got you covered!

Name Your Pain

If your challenges are unique, or your situation unchartered, let us help you rise to the occasion.  With over 30 years of combined Child Nutrition experience on our team,  we can help you find a solution.  If you can name your pain points, we can discover what stops you from being as productive as you could be.  Once identified, we provide training and support to create a long term solution for you and your team.
