Stores authorized as WIC vendors must comply with federal and state regulations, policies and procedures. Vendor management should be familiar with all information in the WIC Vendor Manual.
The Alaska WIC Program has made significant changes to vendor related requirements and procedures since 2012 in response to new federal rules, and due to implementation of the SPIRIT management information system and a new banking contract. The Draft Alaska WIC Vendor Manual incorporates all of the changes to the program through 2015.
The Vendor Manual will be updated periodically with any new changes to the program, including any related to the implementation of electronic banking (EBT) in 2017. Updates to the Vendor Manual will be noticed on this website, and a Notice of Significant Changes will be provided to all authorized vendors when there is a change to policies or requirements that will affect vendors.
