Employing People with Blindness or Severe Disabilities: Enhanced Oversight of the AbilityOne Program Needed
Andrew Sherrill (au)
In 1938, Congress created a program providing employment opportunities for people who are blind and expanded it in 1971 to include people with severe disabilities. Now known as AbilityOne, the programäó»s public-private structure consists of the federal, independent U.S. AbilityOne Commission to oversee the program; two central nonprofit agencies (CNAs) to administer much of the program; and hundreds of affiliated nonprofit companies employing people who are blind or severely disabled to provide products and services to federal agencies. Federal agencies are generally required to purchase such products and services through the program. This report examines how the AbilityOne Commission: (1) directs and oversees the CNAs; (2) adds products and services to the program and assigns affiliates to provide them; and (3) prices program projects. Figures. This is a print on demand report.
