  5. Operating Hours Concerns • Machines are not stocked when visitors arrive in morning. • The vendor does not arrive into the visiting rooms before 10:00 and is not in the rooms past 2:00. • On March 23, there was no water or sugar-free drinks available until after 10:30am • On March 30, frozen machine was partially stocked. On March 31, it was empty (not restocked)

  6. Nutritional Quality Concerns • Almost half of the beverages are sugared and/or caffeinated. Not enough milk/water/diet sodas provided. • On prepared food, there are no nutrition labels or expiration dates. • Chips/Nuts/Trail Mix needs to have more low-fat/baked alternatives.

  7. Utensils and Condiments Concerns • The vendor has stopped supplying condiments to visitors. • On March 9, the vendor began selling condiments in the machines. • On March 23, the condiments had been removed from the machine, but there were none available for paying customers. • On March 30 -31, condiments were still not provided. • Vendor has stated that if he is forced to supply condiments, he will raise prices.

  8. Maintenance of Equipment Concerns • Frozen food machine was out of service for over a month. It is back in service now. • March 23-24 – One beverage machine was inoperable, reducing beverages by 50%. • This machine was stocked by vendor employees while inoperable. • What is the procedure for reporting and repair?

  9. Customer Service Concerns • Has a Customer Satisfaction survey been done on this vendor at all Institutions where he does business? • Is there a written refund policy for the vendor? • A copy should be posted on the IFC Bulletin Board and in each visiting room.

  10. Prices • How should IFC address price concerns from visitors? • Allowed in visiting per DOM: • Fifty Dollars per adult visitor and twenty dollars per minor visitor, coin or one dollar bills only.
