Memoranda of Support

Many Department Secretaries, Agency Directors, Commanding Officers, Procurement Executives and Purchase Card Coordinators in the Federal government issue Memos of Support for the AbilityOne® Program to remind their staff members of the importance of purchasing AbilityOne products and services. Such purchases create employment opportunities for individuals who are blind or who have other significant disabilities, while ensuring that the government receives quality products and services, delivered on time and at reasonable prices.

Some of the federal agencies who have issued memos or other directives in reference to support of the AbilityOne Program include:
