Business Enterprise Program

​Business Enterprise Mission

The mission of the Business Enterprise Program is to promote independence by providing quality business opportunities to legally blind Oregonians through superior customer satisfaction.

The Business Enterprise Program (BEP) is administered by the Oregon Commission for the Blind under the Randolph-Sheppard Vending Stand Act which covers federal properties and ORS 346.510 to 346.570. This state law provides that the Commission for the Blind shall operate vending facilities in or on any "public buildings or properties" defined as any building, land or other real property, owned, leased, or occupied by any department or agency of the State of Oregon.
