The U.S. AbilityOne Commission is an independent federal agency authorized by the Javits-Wagner-O'Day (JWOD) Act and is responsible for overall leadership, strategic guidance, and administration for the AbilityOne Program.
The Central Nonprofit Agencies, the National Industries for the Blind (NIB) and SourceAmerica are not government agencies.
Federal Agencies through their decisions to add supplies and services to the Procurement List, and to buy supplies and services on the Procurement List provide participating nonprofit agencies (NPAs) the means to create employment opportunities for people who are blind or have significant disabilities
Central Nonprofit Agencies (NIB, SourceAmerica) perform multiple roles representing their network of participating NPAs. They directly interface with the Commission, NPAs, contracting activities, and recommend supplies and services to the Commission for addition to the Procurement List.

The contract specialist should review the PL when conducting market research to ensure required sources of supplies and services that can meet the need are considered.
"Essentially the same" means a commercial product meets the same essential requirements (form, fit, function, and other technical requirements) as an AbilityOne Product and must be acquired from the Procurement List.
When purchasing a service, the service must be added to the Procurement List and acquired on a specific location and contracting activity basis.
The ________ negotiate terms, conditions, and develop a recommended Fair Market Price (FMP) that is submitted to the AbilityOne Commission to add new items to the PL for review, rulemaking, and approval, if the product or service is not already on the PL.
NPA, CNA and contracting activity
