On August 23, November 1, December 6, December 20, December 27, 2002, January 24, January 31, and February 7, 2003 the Committee for Purchase From People Who Are Blind or Severely Disabled published notice (67 FR 54629, 66607, 72640, 77962, 79045, 68 FR 3508, 4985, and 6403) of proposed additions 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 result in authorizing small entities to furnish the products and services to the Government.

3. 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:
