WIC Crossroads State Agency Model (SAM)

The WIC Program State Agency Model (SAM) Project is a U.S. Department of Agriculture, Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) 5-year initiative to plan, develop and deploy model information systems in WIC State agencies. The system requirements for each model will be defined by a consortium of State and local agency representatives. The model systems will have the following features:

  • Modern Web (HTML/HTTP) technology
  • Standard WIC data elements
  • Open system architecture
  • Modular components
  • Compliance with Federal policy and regulations

North Carolina is the lead state for the Crossroads Consortium, which includes Alabama, Virginia, and West Virginia.
