CACFP Viability, Capability, And Accountability


Monday, September 9, 2013

"VCA" stands for viability, capability, and accountability. The federal CACFP regulations require all participating institutions to demonstrate financial viability, maintain adequate administrative capability, and have internal controls for accountability.

These requirements were put into place to ensure that tax payer money is being used effectively for the intended purpose. The State Agency will assess each institution's viability, capability, and accountability during the initial application process and continue to monitor viability, capability, and accountability by requesting updates and conducting administrative reviews. Institutions that do not demonstrate viability, capability, and accountability may be subject to financial penalties or termination from the CACFP.
