The federal government spends billions of dollars every year on contracts for food service management at military installations and bases, hospitals, and government buildings and through the federal school lunch program. The purpose of the hearing was to examine whether food service management contractors are withholding rebates, discounts, and credits which should be passed through to the federal government. The hearing reviewed examples of this practice and assess steps taken by agencies to ensure that contractors are in compliance with rebate requirements. The hearing also addressed the need for increased transparency, oversight, and accountability.
