On May 5, 2000, the Committee for Purchase From People Who Are Blind or Severely Disabled published a notice (65 FR 26178) of proposed addition to the Procurement List. After consideration of the material presented to it concerning capability of qualified nonprofit agencies to provide the service and impact of the addition on the current or most recent contractors, the Committee has determined that the service listed below is suitable for procurement by the Federal Government under 41 U.S.C. 46-48c and 41 CFR 51-2.4. I certify that the following action will not have a significant impact on a substantial number of small entities. The major factors considered for this certification were:
1. The action will not result in any additional reporting, recordkeeping or other compliance requirements for small entities other than the small organizations that will furnish the service to the Government.
2. The action will not have a severe economic impact on current contractors for the service.
3. The action will result in authorizing small entities to furnish the service to the Government.
4. There are no known regulatory alternatives which would accomplish the objectives of the Javits-Wagner-O'Day Act (41 U.S.C. 46-48c) in connection with the service proposed for addition to the Procurement List.
Accordingly, the following service is hereby added to the Procurement List:
Operation of the Alternate Format Center, Department of Education, Mary Switzer Building, 330 C Street, SW, Washington, DC
This action does not affect current contracts awarded prior to the effective date of this addition or options that may be exercised under those contracts.Start Signature
