AbilityOne Base Supply Centers

LAB operates the Base Supply Centers at Barksdale AFB and Fort Polk Army Post under the auspices of the Javits Wagner O'Day (JWOD) Act, known as AbilityOne, and in compliance with "Federal Acquisition Regulations" (FAR). The act requires the federal government to procure products and services from non-profit agencies that employ blind or severely handicapped people. Our Base Supply Centers' are another source of employment for people who are blind.
