Food Purchase and Distribution Program
Ensure that the domestic origin of all commodities is adequately verified and documented in compliance with agency policy and guidance.
Establish formal guidance for all commodities specifying how to document in the purchase order folder maintained outside of WBSCM that the commodities purchased are of domestic origin. At a minimum, the guidance should require a brief narrative that supports the domestic origin determination.
Establish a formal review process covering the contracting process for commodity purchases similar to the one conducted for the inspection process.
Ensure that the reviews conducted in Recommendation 3 cover records management in WBSCM.
Enforce AMS policy requiring that all documentation related to procurement be electronically filed under Records Management in WBSCM.
