Procurement List

How to Buy Products

While customers are encouraged to comparison shop between AbilityOne distributors for the best value, they cannot substitute commercial items for AbilityOne items, because AbilityOne products are mandatory purchases at any dollar amount. If a Federal employee identifies an AbilityOne product with a price that seems exceptionally high, they are asked to bring it to the attention of the Commission staff for review. Recent procurement reform measures did not create any exceptions to the requirement to buy AbilityOne. Neither "micropurchasing" authority nor the use of the government purchase card waivers supersedes or bypasses the AbilityOne requirement.
