2016 Year End Wrap Up

Thank you for your participation! At this time we are requesting you begin submitting all items necessary to close out 2016. If you participated in an activity this year, please make sure you fill out both your initial and follow-up evaluations. Branded Program participants need to submit claims, amendments and fill out your evaluation.

Q: Why does Food Export need my company evaluation?

A: Market Access Program (MAP) funding is vital to our ability to offer programs and services at a low, affordable cost. We are even able to offer no-cost services such as Webinars and Food Export HelplineTM. We are only able to receive these funds if we can report back to the USDA, Foreign Agricultural Service the benefits being accrued through the use of MAP funds, as required by MAP regulations. Your evaluation provides that information.

Exporter Education & Market Entry Evaluations

  • There are two evaluations associated with your participation in these programs.
  • An initial evaluation is collected at the conclusion of each activity; a follow-up evaluation needs to be completed 6 months after the activity takes place.  
  • Both evaluations must be completed and submitted for each 2016 activity or program in which your company participated. Evaluations are confidential and results are only reported in aggregate.
  • Please log into your Food Export Portal to complete your evaluations. You'll be able to access them from the "My Home" tab once you log in. If you need any assistance completing your evaluation, please contact our Liaison staff. Thank you for your continued support.
