USDA FNS Data Validation Service Information for Vendors and State System Owners

This webinar was produced by FNS to describe its Data Validation Service (DVS). The DVS is an optional validation service that checks school food authority (SFA)-level Verification Collection Report (FNS-742) records as the SFA submits its data to the state. In real time, the DVS returns error and warning messages back to the SFA through the state system. This webinar is an opportunity to learn more about connecting to the DVS through existing state platforms.
