Koa Hills is USDA-approved

July 17, 2012

It’s not everyday you get USDA-approved.  But that’s just what Koa Hills Consulting did last week.  We’ve been working with the American Samoa Department of Human and Social Services to help them select a new eligibility system for their food stamp program.  The USDA oversees the funding of the project, and after reviewing the RFP we produced, they gave the OK to move forward with the project.  Nice seal of approval!
