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.
