The purpose of the Vendor Price Survey (VPS) is to ensure regional competitive pricing for all stores authorized as West Virginia WIC Vendors as required by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), Food and Nutrition Service (FNS). The prices on the VPS need to reflect the MOST expensive brand for each item your store carriers on the date the survey is completed; enter the product name, package size, 12-digit Universal Product Code (UPC), and the price.
Report actual shelf prices of each item, not a wholesaler's book price, Suggested Retail Price, or sale price.
You must report products and prices for items necessary to meet WIC minimum stock requirements
. Leave blank any food category or items which your stores does not have in stock. Please only list items which are on the shelf as of the date of completion for this VPS.
Complete this VPS if you are a new owner, or a new store.
Complete this VPS if your store is applying for another three (3) year WIC authorization period.
