The United States Department of Defense buys many things to support its troops, their dependents, employees and retirees. One of the services it does provide is Commissaries and Exchanges on bases that allow grocery and household goods to be purchased. As with all stores they need supplies to function.

Envision is a small, disabled business in Kansas. They recently were awarded a contract to provide plastic bags for use at Commissaries and Exchanges. The contract is worth over $47 million.

Envision has already executed several of these contracts and were the only bidder on the new one. It is estimated they will provide over 1 billion bags under this contract.

Federal procurement regulations state that a company employing disabled people is a preferred source. Along with these are Native American owned and those that employ prison labor.
