Site License Details Update Processes in the CNIPS
Nutrition Services Division Management Bulletin
: Policy, Action Required, Beneficial Information
: Child and Adult Care Food Program Operators
: Program Operator
: April 2019
: Title 7, Code of Federal Regulations
, Section 226.15(e)
: Site License Details Update Processes in the Child Nutrition Information and Payment System
: Management Bulletin CACFP-08-2014: Automated Procedures in the Child Nutrition Information and Payment System for Invalid Child Care Licenses
This management bulletin (MB) supersedes the California Department of Education (CDE) MB CACFP-08-2014 and provides clarification on the processes to update the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) center site applications and day care home (DCH) provider site applications license details in the Child Nutrition Information and Payment System (CNIPS).
The CDE receives license data weekly from the California Department of Social Services (CDSS) Community Care Licensing Division (CCLD) that:
- Automatically validates the current license active status of existing CACFP sites; and
- When initiated by the CACFP Operator, updates the CNIPS site applications with current license details
Title 7, Code of Federal Regulations
, Section 226.15(e) requires CACFP Operators to maintain all program records, including applications.
The weekly license active status process automatically closes all center and DCH provider site applications in CNIPS when the license number is no longer coded as active in the CDSS CCLD database. The weekly process occurs and the designated authorized representative in the CNIPS for each CACFP Operator affected by the process receives an automated email notifying them of each CNIPS site application closure. The automatic closure of the sites ensures the CDE is not paying claims for sites that no longer have an active license status.
Updating the CNIPS with Current License Details Process
To update the CNIPS site applications with current license details, the CACFP Operator needs to complete the following actions in the CNIPS CACFP application packet, site or provider application(s) section:
Center Site Applications
next to the site name that needs updated license details
Select the PROGRAM TYPES
tab, re-enter the license number for the applicable program type, and select NEXT
Select the LICENSE/APPROVAL
Review that the LICENSE/APPROVAL
screen license details are updated as needed, and select NEXT
Go to the SITE INFORMATION
tab, and select FINISH
on the next screen
If the Application Packet SUBMIT FOR APPROVAL
option is highlighted in red, select the option to submit for approval. If the option is not highlighted red, no further action is needed
Day Care Home Provider Applications
next to the provider name that needs updated license details
Select REVISE APPLICATION
Enter the current license number in item E2
, and select SAVE
on the next screen
DCH sponsors that import their provider application information with a Sponsor’s Meal Administrative System file need to confirm the accuracy of both the Alternative ID (CNIPS provider application item number B7, Sponsor’s Meal Administrative System file layout sequence number 21) and the License Number (CNIPS provider application item number E2, Sponsor’s Meal Administrative System file layout sequence number 35) before completing the import into the CNIPS. The CNIPS CACFP Sponsor’s Meal Administrative System File Layout Specification is available on the CDE CNIPS web page at https://www.cde.ca.gov/ls/nu/cn/
. It is recommended the DCH sponsor verify the accuracy of the CNIPS provider application(s) after the import is completed.
Please note, the CDSS CCLD data is only received once a week, so the CACFP Operator may need to wait a week before the current license details are available to update the CNIPS site applications.
If the license details are not updated after completing the actions above, and the one week time period has occurred, please contact your CACFP Specialist for further assistance.
