Section 672.405  WIC Vendor Contract Requirement

 

All Authorizations to act as WIC Retail Vendors require a properly executed, valid written WIC Vendor Contract between the Department and the Vendor.  In the retail purchase system, a standard WIC Vendor Contract shall be used statewide and shall expire annually.  Exceptions to this requirement shall be made with the approval of the Director consistent with USDA WIC Regulations (7 CFR 246.12(f)(1)).  Food Instruments accepted after the term of the contract expires will not be reimbursed by the Department's contract bank.

 

a)         A failure by a Vendor to provide any information, as specified herein, shall be deemed to constitute a material breach of contract.

 

b)         Currently authorized WIC Retail Vendors shall be required to submit completed applications at least once every three (3) years.

 

c)         WIC Vendors appealing an order to disqualify and/or to repudiate the Contract at the time of annual expiration of the WIC Vendor Contract will not be reauthorized.  If the appeal is resolved in the Vendor's favor, the Vendor may reapply for authorization at that time, and may not be denied based on the prior disqualification, but only based on other reasons set forth in this Part.
