7 CFR 250.17 - Reports.
(a) Inventory reports and receipt of donated foods. Distributing agencies shall complete and submit to the FNSRO semiannual reports regarding excessive inventories (as defined in § 250.14(f)) of donated foods, utilizing form FNS-155, the Inventory Management Register, except that distributing agencies shall submit monthly inventory information on form FNS-152, for the Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations, and on form FNS-153, for the Commodity Supplemental Food Program. FNS may require the use of other reporting formats. FNS may also require that form FNS-155 be submitted more frequently than semiannually if necessary to maintain program accountability, and that any inventory report be submitted less frequently if sufficient to meet program needs. Reports shall be submitted not later than 30 calendar days after the last month in the reporting period as established by FNS.
(d) Commodity acceptability reports. Distributing agencies shall submit to the FNSRO reports relative to the types and forms of donated foods which are most useful to recipient agencies in accordance with § 250.13(k) of this part.
(f) Report transmission. Where a report is to be postmarked by a specific date and such report is transmitted by means of a facsimile machine, the date printed by the facsimile machine on the facsimile copy may serve as the postmark.
