Urgent Notice!

We appreciate your hard work and dedication to get your claims and documentation into our office early.  Unfortunately, TDA chose this time to take down the TX-UNPS claim processing website that is needed for sponsors to submit claims.  TX-UNPS is the online claiming process website that all sponsors in Texas must use to submit claims for reimbursement for any given month for daycare homes, daycare centers, at-risk sites, shelters, and adult daycare sites.

 

This was posted on the TX-UNPS website.

Welcome to the Texas Unified Nutrition Programs System

TX-UNPS Claim Processing - CACFP & NSLP - Claim Rates

 

“TDA has not received the new Federal Reimbursement Operating Rates for July 1, 2019, to June 30, 2020, claims.  TDA is therefore unable to process the July 2019 claims until the new rates are received.

 

The last day to process claims before TDA's CAPPS implementation shut-down is Tuesday, August 6th.  If the Federal Reimbursement Operating Rates for July 1, 2019, to June 30, 2020, claims are not received on or before Tuesday, August 6th, then July 2019 claims will be processed the later of Tuesday, September 3rd or the date the updated rates are received.”

If Federal Reimbursement Operating Rates are posted, and TDA processes the claims on September 3, 2019, we should have the funds to send out reimbursements towards the end of the following week.

 

Child Food Program of Texas understands the difficult situation this puts everyone in.

Important information regarding your July 2019 Claim Processing:

This notice came to us directly from Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA) and applies to all sponsors across Texas.

“The Texas Department of Agriculture is in the process of transitioning to a new budget and accounting system. The new system, CAPPS (Centralized Accounting and Payroll/Personnel system), will allow TDA to communicate better with the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts and serve our CEs better.

 

To allow transition of the system, TDA will deviate from the normal claims and other processing and payment schedules to which our CEs have grown accustomed. However, TDA will remain within its USDA statutory deadlines of paying all valid claims within 45 calendar days of receipt.

 

All valid claims submitted in TXUNPS prior to noon August 6, 2019, will be process and paid as regularly scheduled.  Valid claims submitted in TXUNPS after noon August 6, 2019, will be processed on or about September 3, 2019. Please allow for normal processing time of 5 to 7 business days to receive these payments.  After September 3rd, the normal schedule of processing and paying claims twice per week should resume.

 

Please note, despite this interruption of TDA’s standard payment process, all deadlines for submitting claims remain unchanged.”

This means the July claims will be processed late.  Claims will not be processed by TDA until after September 3rd.  This will cause Child Food Program of Texas to not be able to pay the July 2019 claims until the week of September 9th.

 

Please plan accordingly as there is not anything that we can change.

If this Mandatory Training is not completed it will affect the October 2019 reimbursement.
