The purpose of this thesis is to determine how effectively the Department of the Army field ontracting activities are complying with the requirements of the Javits-Wagner-O'Day Act. The Act was implemented by Public Law 92-28 and was designed to provide employment opportunities for people who are blind or severely disabled through the Federal Government procurement of commodities and services. The Javits-Wagner-O'Day Program is a mandatory source program which requires Government contracting activities to procure certain products and services from nonprofit agencies. Some of the benefits to Government contracting activities and their customers are quality products and services, reasonable prices, and on-time delivery or performance. Some of the problems are unfamiliarity with the Program, biases against the disabled, and the lengthy time period to add items to the Procurement List.
