SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The Committee's longstanding convention is to publish its proposed and final notices on Friday each week; however, the notices that should have been published on Friday, 01/02/2009 were published on Monday, 01/05/2009 instead. Interested members of the Public can see 74 FR 260, 261 for the proposed additions and deletions to the Procurement List that were published on Monday, 01/05/2009 instead of Friday, 01/02/2009.

Additions

On 10/10/2008 and 11/7/2008, the Committee for Purchase From People Who Are Blind or Severely Disabled published notices (73 FR 60236, 60237 and 73 FR 66216, 66217) of proposed additions to the Procurement List.

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

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