  1. WIC Record Destruction: Attached is the current letter on audit closure and WIC record destruction for records from Federal Fiscal Year 2007 (through September 30, 2007) and older, unless prohibited from doing so by other state or local restrictions. At the time of destruction all audits should be closed and there should be no outstanding related findings or issues. Please refer to WIC Operations Manual (WOM) ER # 1.06000 on Local WIC Provider Record Retention and Destruction. That policy will direct you on how to properly destroy WIC records and document the destruction. It will also provide you with a link to state law that covers records that your agency’s legal counsel or governing body have determined to be medical records. Please contact your district administrative technical assistance staff with any questions. (ONE ATTACHMENT)

  2. Webinars on the WIC Website: The Applicant Processing Standards and Income Assessment and Documentation webinars are now on the WIC website. Both webinars are required for all new staff and staff returning from a break in service of one year or greater. Completion is required within six months from date of hire.
    If you have questions, please contact Mark Davis at Mark.Davis@health.mo.gov or 573-526-5323 or 800-392-8209.

  3. WIC Advertisements/Media - Change in Procedure: Effective immediately, all requests for WIC advertisements such as billboards and television or radio spots should be sent to your technical assistance (TA) team for approval, instead of sending directly to Debby Hanlon at the State WIC Office. See map with TA assignments.

    If you have questions, please contact Mark Davis at Mark.Davis@health.mo.gov or 573-526-5323 or 800-392-8209.
