The Randolph-Sheppard Act


The Randolph-Sheppard Act (P.L. 74-732), as amended, was enacted to provide individuals who are blind with remunerative employment and to enhance their economic well-being. Through Randolph-Sheppard Act (R-SA) programs, individuals who are blind and in need of employment are given priority in the operation of vending facilities on federal property. Typically, individuals who are blind and receive R-SA program contracts act as managers of vending facilities, subcontracting with food service organizations that provide meal and/or vending services on a day-to-day basis. Run by a state licensing agency through the U.S. Department of Education's state vocational rehabilitation program, R-SA programs may also be labeled "business enterprise programs" or "vending facilities programs." R-SA programs are not mandatory, though every state except Wyoming chooses to participate.
