On August 17, September 21, September 28, and October 9, 2001, the Committee for Purchase From People Who Are Blind or Severely Disabled published notices (66 FR 43180, 48661, 49615 and 51372) of proposed additions to the Procurement List.
After consideration of the material presented to it concerning capability of qualified nonprofit agencies to provide the commodity and services and impact of the additions on the current or most recent contractors, the Committee has determined that the commodity and services listed below are 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 commodity and services to the Government.
2. The action will not have a severe economic impact on current contractors for the commodity and services.
3. The action will result in authorizing small entities to furnish the Start Printed Page 58712commodity and services 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 commodity and services proposed for addition to the Procurement List.
Accordingly, the following commodity and services are added to the Procurement List:
Central Facility Management, Veterans Affairs Headquarters Building, Washington, DC; Janitorial/Custodial, El Centro Toilet Cleaning, Bureau of Land Management, Imperial County, California; Janitorial/Custodial, Special Processing (Detention) Center, U.S. Immigration & Naturalization Service, Ramey, Puerto Rico; Laundry Service, R. E. Bush Naval Hospital, Twenty-nine Palms, California.
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
