D. Waybill Authorization

Delegate the authority to dispatch food to a warehouse manager or storekeeper or someone higher up in the organization. Before signing the waybill:

· Insure that the information on the waybill is complete.

· Insure that the type and quantity of food loaded on the truck matches both the information on the waybill and the information in the distribution plan for the project.

· Insure that the delivery location on the waybill matches the delivery location on the distribution plan or the disposition memo for unfit food.

· Obtain the signature of the person taking the food from the warehouse, usually the transporter.

Once these requirements have been met, sign the waybill and the food can be dispatched.

Internal Control

The transporter must also sign all dispatch waybills to document his agreement with the quantities described in the waybill.
