SUBJECT 2: WIC Record Destruction
JOB POSTING: WIC Nutritionist – Platte County Health Department
JOB POSTING: Nutritionist/Registered Dietitian – Clay County Public Health Center
SUBJECT 1: August 31, 2020 – Last Day to Use Checks. Once WIC local agencies (LAs) are eWIC enabled, they will not be able to print checks. During the statewide rollout period, those LAs that are not part of Pilots 1 and 2 must not issue any September benefit checks while waiting to become eWIC enabled. There should be no checks issued that have a last date to use beyond August 31, 2020.
LAs should begin working through the process of migrating the entire caseload by this deadline date. This may require staff to only print one (1) to two (2) months of checks, or moving the WIC participants certification period up to ease this transition during July and August. Please contact your technical assistance (TA) team for suggestions or assistance.
SUBJECT 2: WIC Record Destruction. Attached is the current memo on audit closure and WIC record destruction for records from Federal Fiscal Year 2014 (through September 30, 2014) 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 findings or related issues. Please refer to WIC Operations Manual (WOM) 10.1.070 Local Agency 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.
