Child Nutrition User role for CNMS Direct Certification

Here is what is in place for the Child Nutrition role in the NYSSIS application:

  • The NYSED Office of Child Nutrition is using the NYSSIS application (http://www.p12.nysed.gov/irs/nyssis/home.html) to better account for the students that they are providing service for.
    • The NYSSIS application is only matching SFA rosters to Medicaid and SNAP data for the NYSED Office of Child Nutrition.
    • This process is not a means to obtain a NYSSIS ID which is for the P12 enrollment data collected for SIRS (http://www.p12.nysed.gov/irs/sirs/home.html).
  • Level 1 Data centers will not be given access to the child nutrition screens.
  • The child nutrition screens will not have any impact on the day to day P12 data processing and resolution in NYSSIS. 
  • Institutional locations that are a SFA with the NYSED Office of Child Nutrition and DOES NOT submit data for SIRS should use the NYSSIS application with the "Child Nutrition User" role.
  • There is a dual role called "NYSSIS & Child Nutrition User" for accessing the NYSSIS P12 enrollment screens for SIRS and the child nutrition screens for institutions that submit to SIRS data collections and are Child Nutrition SFA location ONLY.
    • Accounts with the dual role access "NYSSIS & Child Nutrition User" for a institutional locations that is NOT recognized for BOTH SIRS data collection and Child Nutrition SFA status will not be able to access any data in the NYSSIS application.
  • The child nutrition screens in the NYSSIS application will only show data for locations that are an approved SFA recognized by the NYSED Office of Child Nutrition.
  • All inquires from child nutrition SFA locations about using child nutrition screens in the NYSSIS application should be sent to the NYSED Office of Child Nutrition.
    • Account access issues accessing the child nutrition screens in the NYSSIS application can be reported to datasupport@nysed.gov .
