Each year, pursuant to section 87(f-2) of the U.S. Grain Standards Act, the Federal Grain Inspection Service respectfully submits an annual report to the United States Congress. Activities described in this report cover Fiscal Year (FY) 2017 (October 1, 2016, through September 30, 2017).
All content is reported as Grain Inspection, Packers and Stockyards Administration (GIPSA). In FY 2018, the realignment of offices within the U.S. Department of Agriculture eliminates GIPSA as a standalone agency. The grain inspection activities formerly part of GIPSA are now organized under the Agricultural Marketing Service.
This report is divided into seven sections. After the Introduction, Sections II through V represent program goals, and Sections VI and VII provide information regarding the Federal Grain Inspection Service’s management initiatives and financial position.
Any mention of firm names or trade products does not imply that they are endorsed or recommended directly or indirectly by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
