ACTION: Final Notice; adoption of operational name for agency. AGENCY: The Committee for Purchase From People Who Are Blind or Severely Disabled has deliberated and voted to adopt U.S. AbilityOne Commission as its operational name. The operational name change will not affect the statutory name of the agency; however, the name change will allow the Committee to take advantage of the strong and unified AbilityOne® name. The Committee has decided to adopt an operational name in order to ensure greater recognition and transparency as a federal agency responsible for implementing and administering a federal statute.

Summary of Notice The Javits-Wagner-O’Day (JWOD) Act (Pub. L. 92–28), established an agency to be known as the Committee for Purchase From People Who Are Blind or Severely Disabled (Committee). The purpose of the JWOD Act is to generate employment and training opportunities for people who are blind or have other severe disabilities in the manufacture and delivery of products and services to the federal government. The law requires federal agencies to procure certain products and services that are produced and provided by communitybased nonprofit agencies that are dedicated to training and employing persons who are blind or have other severe disabilities. The Committee is an independent federal agency and consists of fifteen members appointed by the President (11 from specific federal agencies and four private citizens). The Committee works closely and collaboratively with two designated (non-governmental) central nonprofit agencies (CNAs): National Industries for the Blind (NIB) and NISH (creating employment opportunities for people with significant disabilities) to operate the program. In addition, the JWOD Act authorizes the Committee to make rules and regulations necessary to carry out the Act. In 1938, Congress passed the WagnerO’Day Act so people who are blind could manufacture mops and brooms to sell the federal government. In 1971, the JWOD Act expanded the Wagner-O’Day Act to include people who had severe disabilities and to authorize the program to provide services to the government. For decades, the program operated as the ‘‘NIB/NISH Program’’ and/or the ‘‘JWOD Program.’’ In 2006, the program changed its name to AbilityOne® in order to build a descriptive and powerful brand identity, to better convey its employment mission, and to link participating nonprofit agencies. The name change to AbilityOne has been a tremendous success and has resulted in a stronger, more unified program. However, there still exists confusion and misunderstanding among federal agencies and non-federal entities, regarding the status and E:\FR\FM\30SEN1.SGM 30SEN1
