The official determination by the Commission that one or more NPAs will deliver a product or service that is on or added to the Procurement List. Designation occurs after the Commission determines a proposed product or service is suitable to be added to the Procurement List and the Commission independently decides that the NPA(s) are qualified and capable to deliver the product or service. The designation is announced in the Federal Register Notice of addition to the Procurement List. Designation may also be changed by administrative action subsequent to Procurement List addition. A notice of change to the Procurement List is issued to show the designated NPA(s). Note: A designated NPA is not the same as a participating NPA. (U.S. AbilityOne Commission Policy 51.301)

Drug Free Workplace Policy

Applies to all federal grantees (regardless of the amount of the grant) and most prime contracts more than $100,000. Coverage is on a contract by contract basis—not on an enterprise basis—so not all employees may be covered. Subcontractors on a covered contract are not subject to the provisions. Contracts paid from non-appropriated funds are not subject to this program. Covered employers must create both a drug free workplace policy and program and advise covered employees of both. Covered employees must notify employer within 5 calendar days of any drug conviction; employers then have 10 calendar days to advise contracting agency of the conviction.
