I wanted to reach out to you to introduce you to the National Industries for the Blind (NIB) and the AbilityOne Program (AB1) and how it can enhance your strategic offerings and capabilities.
NIB’s mission it to enhance the opportunities for economic and personal independence of persons who are blind, primarily by creating, sustaining, and improving employment. NIB and more than 85 associated agencies throughout the USA, are the largest employers of Americans who are blind. These workers make quality products, work at Base Supply Center stores, and provide business services for government, military, and commercial entities/agencies.
The benefit of adding NIB and AB1 to your teaming strategy includes improving employment opportunities for blind persons while enhancing your ongoing projects or planned RFP pursuits relevant to “contract management support (CMS)”, administrative, and information assurance/help desk support (IAT Level 1 Certified) opportunities. As part of the AB1 Program, these products and agency services help government and military procurement officers meet their federal purchase requirements under FAR 8.7 and other procurement regulations. For more than 70 years, NIB has provided job opportunities for people who are blind.

I would appreciate the opportunity to meet with you for further discussions on how the NIB and AB1 program can benefit your capture strategy. This approach would provide an invaluable service to employ blind persons and enhance your delivery model.
Please feel free to give me a call if you would like to discuss in more detail. Have a great weekend!
