UII is an AbilityOne partner through Source America
UII supports SourceAmerica and its network of community-based Non-Profit Agencies (NPA) in securing and improving federal and commercial contracts through the AbilityOne Program. Since 2009, UII has been providing an array of consulting services to SourceAmerica under the AbilityOne Program to support their mission to create meaningful employment opportunities for people with significant disabilities. UII provides contracted consulting services in support of the Total Facilities Management (TFM), Information Technology (IT), and Supply Chain Management (SCM) Lines of Business (LOB) to SourceAmerica. The scope of our consulting services contracts encompasses various aspects of business support for government and commercial contracts from the initial review of Performance Work Statements (PWS) requirements through conducting assessments of NPA’s already performing contracts under the AbilityOne Program.
UII provides PWS risk identification, capabilities assessments, operational assessments, planning and execution support, contract support in pricing Contract Line Item Numbers (CLINs), identification of Contract Data Requirements Lists (CDRLs), training content development and delivery, process analysis and quality improvement support. The PWS review support we provide is designed to identify potential areas of risk posed by missing, unclear, obsolete, or conflicting information, as well as the risk posed on the NPA by the PWS requirements. Once the potential risks are identified, UII makes recommendations for acceptance mitigation or risk avoidance. UII participates in meetings with SourceAmerica A, NPA’s, and/or the contracting representatives, to clearly define contract requirements. UII frequently tasked to assess the operations and administration of the NPA Prime Contractor, along with all Sub-contractors. The information gathered during the assessments is used to develop or evaluate Action Plans that take into consideration the customer’s needs, the NPA’s practices, AbilityOne requirements, and market conditions.
UII can provide the following consulting elements in support of securing and improving federal and commercial contracts through the AbilityOne Program:

UII Standards Laboratory NVLAP Accredited
UII maintains continued accreditation of our Metrology Standards Laboratory under the National Voluntary Laboratory Accreditation Program (NVLAP). Spearheaded by former Director Richard Cozier and current Director James McWilliams, initial accreditation was the successful result to a formidable effort including application submission, on-site assessment, proficiency testing, and technical evaluation. UII has maintained NVLAP accreditation since June 30, 2004.
Administered by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), NVLAP consists of a series of laboratory accreditation programs (LAPs), established on the basis of requests and demonstrated need. NVLAP provides an unbiased third-party evaluation of laboratory performance and competence in specific calibration activities and tests. A NVLAP accreditation is granted when NVLAP determines that the operation is in accordance with NVLAP requirements for quality systems; personnel; accommodation and environment; test and calibration methods; equipment; measurement traceability; sampling; handling of test and calibration items; and test and calibration reports. More importantly, a NVLAP accreditation is viewed by our current and prospective customers as a distinguished mark of quality, ensuring compliance to key internationally recognized standards, such as those detailed in the NIST Handbook. After meeting the requirements of NIST Handbook 150, the UII Standards Laboratory is accredited by NVLAP to ISO 17025:2005 and NCSL/ANSI Z540-1 and operates a quality and management system compliant to ISO 9001:2008.
The UII Standards Laboratory is located in Springfield, VA, about 5 miles from UII Corporate Headquarters. Established in 1985 in collaboration with the Navy's Strategic Systems Programs (SSP), the laboratory serves the TRIDENT submarine system. Through a fee-for-use arrangement with the Navy, the laboratory may also serve other organizations. As the next addition to an elite group of Accredited Laboratories, the laboratory consistently receives plaudits for the quality of its work, communications with customers, and the precision of its logistics efforts. Our extensive Scope of Accreditation is available online at http://ts.nist.gov/Standards/scopes/2005970.pdf.
