SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Additions

On 5/29/2009 (74 FR 25717-25718); 6/12/2009 (74 FR 28028); 6/19/2009 (74 FR 29187-29189); 6/26/2009 (74 FR 30531-30532) and 7/10/2009 (74 FR 33211-33212); the Committee for Purchase From People Who Are Blind or Severely Disabled published notices of proposed additions to the Procurement List.

After consideration of the material presented to it concerning capability of qualified nonprofit agencies to provide the services and impact of the additions on the current or most recent contractors, the Committee has determined that the services listed below are suitable for procurement by the Federal Government under 41 U.S.C. 46-48c and 41 CFR 51-2.4.

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 services to the Government.

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

End of Certification

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

Service Type/Location: Food Service & Mess Attendants, Seabee Camp, Covington Guam Support Facility, Resident NMCB, Santa Rita, Guam.

NPA: Able Industries of the Pacific, Santa Rita, Guam.

Contracting Activity: Dept of the Navy, FISC Pearl Harbor, HI.

The Federal Register identifies the services as “Food Service” and “Mess Attendants,” which are programmatic methods to identify the services provided by nonprofit agencies employing people who are blind or who have other severe disabilities within the AbilityOne Program. While the Randolph-Sheppard Act provides entrepreneurial management opportunities for blind vendors, under normal circumstances it does not afford them priority for food service, mess attendant and other services supporting the operation of a military dining facility short of management responsibilities. The Committee determines that the information provided in the Federal Register Notice is sufficiently clear to identify the services sought. There is no R-SA Program in place on Guam at this time.

NPA: Employment Source, Inc., Fayetteville, NC.

The Federal Register identifies the services as “Dining Facility Attendant Service” which is the programmatic method to identify the services provided by nonprofit agencies employing people who are blind or who have other severe disabilities within the AbilityOne Program.

The Committee determines that the information provided in the Federal Register Notice is sufficiently clear to identify the services sought. Based on the information available, the Committee may determine that this service is appropriate for the AbilityOne Program.

The Federal Register identifies the services as “Food Service Attendant” which is the programmatic method to identify the services provided by nonprofit agencies employing people who are blind or who have other severe disabilities within the AbilityOne Program. While the Randolph-Sheppard Act provides entrepreneurial opportunities for blind vendors, under normal circumstances it does not afford them priority for food service attendant opportunities supporting the operation of a military dining facility short of management responsibilities. The Committee determines that the information provided in the Federal Register Notice is sufficiently clear to identify the services sought. Based on the information available, the Committee may determine that this service is appropriate for the AbilityOne Program.

The Federal Register identifies the services as “Dining Service Attendant” and “Mess Service Attendant”, which are historical and programmatic methods to identify the services provided by nonprofit agencies employing people who are blind or with other severe disabilities within the AbilityOne Program. While the Randolph-Sheppard Act provides entrepreneurial opportunities for blind vendors, it does not include food service attendant opportunities reserved for the AbilityOne Program. Thus, the information provided in the Federal Register notice is sufficiently clear to identify the services sought and precludes those services from being procured under the Randolph-Sheppard Act.
