SUBJECT 2: Direct Shipping of Formulas - Holiday Schedule. As you all know we are getting closer to the holiday season. Some of the companies that we order our formulas from for direct shipping to the local agencies work a “holiday” schedule.

In preparation for Thanksgiving, please have your requests for any formula that has to be direct shipped submitted by Wednesday, November 18th.

For the Christmas holiday, please have your formula direct ship requests submitted by Wednesday, December 16th.

The formula companies are often closed during the week between Christmas and New Year’s so we will not be able to order formula again until January 4, 2016.

Follow your usual process for contacting the state nutritionist for your formula approvals. If you have questions, please contact your TA Nutritionist.

SUBJECT 3: WIC Invoicing/WIC-24 Invoice. When creating a Budget Adjustment or Invoice in the online WIC Invoicing (WIC 24) Application, double check the FFY. After October 1 the FFY for Budget Adjustments automatically defaults to 2016. If you have any questions, please contact Laura Thompson at Laura.Thompson@health.mo.gov or 573-526-7901.
