Ca Wic Vendor Agreement

4 dezembro 2020

Q: Will the food allowed to the WIC change? A: Yes. We will add authorized wic foods. Lenders will be informed of the details of these supplements in early July. Our goal is to add authorized wic foods that are already present in stores (for example. B more brands of juice, cereals and infant food). The Hawaii Wic Food Selection Committee has visited many Hawaiian wic stores and the new licensed FOOD WICs are based on items already in stock. The challenge will be to train the cashier and staff to be ready to see wiC participants who buy different food brands. A new food list will be printed and sent to all WIC suppliers in Hawaii before officially adding new foods. In addition, minimum storage requirements are updated to reflect these changes. Instead of “12 bottles of juice,” for example, “12 bottles of authorized wic juice” are asked. Q: Do customers have a choice between WIC controls and eWIC cards? A: No. During the transition, there will be a period during which some participants will have WIC cards and others will continue to take WIC exams.

During this transition, WIC suppliers should expect to process both paper and eWIC transactions. However, once the transition is complete, there will only be WIC cards. Hawaii eWIC Vendor Guide (for stand-beside providers) New agreements are expected to include changes implemented in October 2013 and June 2014 with respect to lender authorization criteria, peer group criteria and repayment rates. Vendor Alert 2015-05, available here and on CA WIC`s website, outlines certain areas of the lender agreement that contain new information and some timelines for current lenders as of the expiry date of the agreement before and after August 1, 2015. Q: I have a POS system built into my shop. Can I manage the eWIC transaction? A: Jim Chilcoat, CDP`s Head of Retail Integration, and his team began reaching out to all OF Hawaii`s WIC suppliers to evaluate their existing POS devices. It will then be able to determine the measures necessary for this eWIC transaction processing equipment. Q: Do I have to manage upC lists myself? A: No.

Integrated eWIC systems and stand-dao terminals are connected to the Hawaii WIC APL file.
