School Food Authority (SFA) USDA LDOE Compliance

Effective May 17, 2018, the Louisiana Department of Education (LDOE) has formally advised that state contracts maintained by the Office of State Procurement (OSP) are allowable for use by school food authorities (SFAs), as long as the contract has been amended by OSP to include USDA-specific provisions, and the SFA ensures its own ongoing compliance with due diligence requirements published by LDOE relative to all procurements regardless of source.

As a result, OSP is please to make the following contracts available for immediate and ongoing use by SFAs. These contracts have been amended to make the contracts compliant to the best of OSP’s knowledge. On an ongoing basis, OSP will upload solicitation and contract documents of the type requested by LDOE to eCat (linked below by contract) for SFAs’ records. Contracts not listed below should not be used in the future by SFAs.


For questions to OSP about SFA compliance, please contact Tom Ketterer at
