FAA Responsibilities Regarding GLAs
(01/01/21 – 12/31/21)
Prior to certifying any GLA residents, the GLA must be listed as an approved institution on the PST Institution List (for internal use only). The Policy Support Team (PST) must verify the GLA is authorized by FNS or is certified by the appropriate agency and verify that it is a nonprofit organization. When a GLA is not listed on the PST Institution List, see Maintaining Institutions.
The PST must conduct periodic, random on-site visits to the GLA. The visits are to ensure the accuracy of the list of currently participating residents. The visits also ensure that FAA records are consistent and current.
The PST is responsible for establishing and monitoring the eligibility status of participating GLAs.
