HHS/GSA guidelines comment period extended

The public comment period for the Request for Information (RFI) on implementing the current HHS/GSA Health and Sustainability Guidelines for Federal Concessions and Vending Operations (“Guidelines”) has been extended to Sept. 30, 2015. The U.S. General Services Administration issued this RFI to gather responses from the vending and food service industry, private and public sector worksite leadership, public and environmental health organizations, and other interested parties on the successes and barriers encountered when implementing the current Guidelines. The Guidelines are being updated through a collaborative federal effort. It is anticipated that the updated Guidelines will be disseminated following the release of the Dietary Guidelines for Americans, 2015.

Interested individuals and organizations can view and provide comments in response to the RFI by visiting here. The public comment period is now open and will close on September 30, 2015.

The timeline for submitting clarifying questions has been extended to September 15, 2015. The process for submitting questions is provided in the RFI.
