SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Additions

On May 6, May 13, and May 20, 2005, the Committee for Purchase From People Who Are Blind or Severely Disabled published notice (70 FR 23979, 25534/25535/25536, and 29274) 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.

The following material pertains to the products identified in this Federal Register notice.

By notice of May 13, 2005 (70 FR 25534), the Committee proposed to add the following quantities of military uniforms to its Procurement List:

New Army Combat Uniform (ACU) Coats & Trousers “ Transition Quantities Qualified Nonprofit Agencies under the Committee's program are currently authorized to produce 300,000 Battle Dress Uniform (BDU) trousers and 100,000 BDU coats. During the Army's transition from BDU to the ACU, at the request of the Defense Supply Center-Philadelphia (DSCP), it is proposed that qualified nonprofit agencies produce an additional 200,000 BDU trousers, 900,000 ACU coats, 900,000 ACU trousers, and 50,000 BDU coats annually, for a period of three years. Once the transition period is complete, the additional quantities will be deleted from the Procurement List and the qualified nonprofit agencies will reduce their production, back to 300,000 ACU trousers and 100,000 ACU coats.”

On June 16, 2005, DSCP took action to issue immediate Stop Work Orders to all manufacturers of BDU uniforms of all types, including the nonprofit agencies currently producing BDUs under the Committee's program. The transition to the ACUs will be accelerated, without the planned three year period of transition from BDUs to ACUs. Therefore, the Committee decided to convert the announced addition quantities of BDUs into the same quantities of ACUs proposed in the May 13, 2005, notice of proposed addition (70 FR 25534). These additional quantities of ACUs will remain on the Procurement List for a period of three years and then will be deleted.

Under the Committee's replacement commodity regulation (41 CFR 51-6.13(a)), the additional quantities of BDUs proposed by the May 13, 2005, notice (70 FR 25534) are automatically considered to be on the Procurement List as ACU replacements for the BDUs, by virtue of this notice of addition. The BDUs will also remain on the Procurement List until there is no longer a Government requirement for BDUs.

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

Regulatory Flexibility Act Certification

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 Start Printed Page 40979services proposed for addition to the Procurement List.

End of Certification

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