On October 10, October 24, November 7, and November 14, 2003, the Committee for Purchase From People Who Are Blind or Severely Disabled published notice (68 FR 58651, 60908, 63057/63058, and 64589) 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.

2. The action will result in authorizing small entities to furnish the products and services to the Government.
