Provision Clarification: Sit-to-Stand workstations to Service members
On October 1, 2018, the Computer/Electronic Accommodations Program (CAP) announced that it would stop providing sit-to-stand accommodations to all of its Service members, Department of Defense, and Federal employee populations because of budgetary constraints. To clarify, CAP will review and consider requests for sit-to-stand accommodations for active duty Service members when certain severely limiting medical conditions are present.
CAP will require medical documentation from Orthopedic or other specialists for these conditions (not a primary care physician) when the requests are submitted for sit-to-stand devices or sit-to-stand accessories. In addition, a statement from the Service member and/or their designated reasonable accommodation POC regarding their limitations, condition, and how the accommodation will assist with the completion of job tasks will be also required.
For CAP to consider the provision of the sit-to-stand, the Service member or designated reasonable accommodation POC must submit a needs assessment request on our website at www.cap.mil. All sit-to-stand tools and/or accessories that CAP may consider providing will be those items on CAP's Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA)
