Potential Distributors

A true opportunity awaits those interested in becoming an AbilityOne® Program authorized distributor. Administered by the U.S. AbilityOne Commission®, the AbilityOne Program creates jobs and training opportunities for individuals who are blind or have other significant disabilities. AbilityOne products are mandatory items under the Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR 8.7) and most carry the SKILCRAFT® brand name. Contractors providing supplies for use by Federal Government personnel are also required to provide mandatory items available through the AbilityOne Program, according to FAR Part 52.208-9.

For more information about the AbilityOne Program and/or becoming an authorized AbilityOne distributor, please contact Eric Beale at (703) 603-2119 or by e-mail at ebeale@abilityone.gov. Answers to Distributor's Frequently Asked Questions are available in the Distributor FAQ.

ETS Files

The reference files provided below identify the commercial items available from the authorized AbilityOne wholesalers that have been determined to be 'Essentially the same" (ETS) as items provided through the AbilityOne Program. The ETS commercial items should not be placed on any Federal contracts or Blanket Purchase Agreements (BPAs). In addition, many of the ETS commercial items must be blocked from sale to Federal customers in an automated fashion through your order-entry system. This is not a comprehensive list of ETS items. Other commercial items not available from the authorized AbilityOne wholesalers may be considered ETS.
