The AbilityOne Program is a federal initiative to help people who are blind or have other severe disabilities find employment by working for nonprofit agencies (NPAs) that sell products and/or services to the U.S. government. With a national network of 600 NPAs, AbilityOne is the largest source of employment for people who are blind or have other severe disabilities in the United States.
AbilityOne has supported our DoD and federal customers for over 70 years. We understand the unique needs of the U.S. military and can accommodate complex contract and program requirements. We help you meet strict industry standards and certifications such as ISO 9000, CARF, JCAHO and ASHES. Most importantly, our capable, reliable employees bring an exceptional, award-winning work ethic to every project.
Contracts under the AbilityOne Program offer government customers high-quality products available through a variety of distributors at reasonable prices and delivered when needed. The provisions of the program enable a long-term supplier relationship, eliminating the need to re-compete the contract. The AbilityOne team also works to streamline the process as much as possible. Finally, contracting with the AbilityOne Program allows people who are blind or have other severe disabilities an opportunity to gain meaningful employment, lead more independent lives, reduce dependence on government entitlement programs and become contributing, tax paying members of society.
