Additions

On October 5, 2001, March 8, and March 15, 2002, the Committee for Purchase From People Who Are Blind or Severely Disabled published notice (66 F.R. 51005, 67 FR 10663, 10664, and 11661) of proposed additions to the Procurement List.

The following comments pertain to the Janitorial/Custodial Service, Ronald Reagan Building at the Federal Tenant Spaces only, Washington, DC.

Comments were received from a subcontractor to the current contractor for this service. The subcontractor claimed that addition of this service to the Procurement List would have a severe adverse impact on the company. The subcontractor also questioned whether the addition met Committee regulatory requirements concerning creation of employment opportunities and qualification of the designated nonprofit agency to participate in the Committee's program. The Committee's regulation, at 41 CFR 51-2.4(a)(4), requires the Committee to assess impact of a Procurement List addition on the Start Printed Page 31763current contractor. This requirement exists because the current contractor is usually the most likely organization to win a competition for the next contract for the service in question, if it is not added to the Procurement List. Whether a subcontractor will continue to hold a subcontract for a service is at the discretion of the contractor, not the competitive procurement process or the Government contracting activity. Accordingly, the Committee does not consider impact on a subcontractor to constitute the severe adverse impact on the current contractor which the Committee's regulation requires the Committee to avoid in making its Procurement List addition decisions.

The subcontractor's contentions concerning the nonprofit agency's capability and program qualification are based on the subcontractor's beliefs that the people to be employed are not capable of safely operating machinery or otherwise performing some of the tasks involved in providing this janitorial service, and that security requirements will require the nonprofit agency to permanently retain people without disabilities who currently hold security clearances to work in the building. This service does not have specialized equipment or performance requirements unlike other janitorial services performed by this nonprofit agency. The Committee's determination that the nonprofit agency is capable of performing this service was based on an assessment by an industrial engineer who is familiar with the capabilities of the nonprofit agency and the Government customer. The Committee has approved a phase-in of the people with severe disabilities who will perform the service. One reason for the phase-in is to allow time for security clearances to be granted. Current employees with security clearances will be retained only as long as they are needed to meet the Government's requirements.

The following material pertains to all of the items being added to the Procurement List.

After consideration of the material presented to it concerning capability of qualified nonprofit agencies to provide the products and services and impact of the additions on the current or most recent contractors, the Committee has determined that the products 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 products and services to the Government.

2. The action will not have a severe economic impact on current contractors for the products and services.

3. The action will result in authorizing small entities to furnish the products 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 products and services proposed for addition to the Procurement List.

Accordingly, the following products and services are added to the Procurement List:
