What is GSA’s Relationship with the AbilityOne Program?

In 2002, GSA/PBS created a partnership with the AbilityOne program and developed a Strategic Alliance agreement. Since that time, GSA/PBS has been striving to reach the established vision and goals of the Alliance stated below to ensure people with disabilities have an opportunity to work while GSA receives quality custodial service consistent with the services provided by the commercial sector.
 
The vision of the agreement is to establish a strategic alliance for long-term mutual benefit to deliver improved contracting processes, recognizes the AbilityOne Program as the vendor of choice, values market-pricing, creates employment opportunities, improves processes, demonstrates flexibility, increases quality, advances industry innovation, and implements environmentally sustainable business practices.
 
The goals of the agreement are to:
  • Increase the number of new and diverse employment opportunities for people with severe disabilities.
  • Employ industry best practices at the best value for taxpayers
  • Ensure the Alliance will not adversely impact small businesses
On August 8, 2013, the GSA/PBS along with SourceAmerica and the U.S. AbilityOne Commission, partnered to renew their commitment to the AbilityOne program and re-signed the Strategic Alliance. The initial agreement was signed on November 4, 2002.
