Abstract:

With the passage of the Javits-Wagner-ODay JWOD Act in June of 1971, the United States Congress directed Government agencies, including the Department of Defense, to procure designated commodities and services from nonprofit agencies sponsored by the National Industries for the Blind and NISH. This study provides the reader with an overview of the entire JWOD Program. It analyzes the Programs governing regulations, its intent, its oversight organizations, and the barriers and benefits to its effectual implementation. In addition, this study describes a successful example of innovative contracting by the Department of the Navy with a state-of-the-art nonprofit participant.
