SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Additions

On 6/4/2010 (75 FR 31768-31769); 6/11/2010 (75 FR 33270-33271); 6/18/2010 (75 FR 34701-34702); and 6/25/2010 (75 FR 36363-36371), the Committee for Purchase From People Who Are Blind or Severely Disabled published notices of proposed additions to the Procurement List.

Comments were received from a commercial contractor indicating that its firm produces the Army Combat Uniform (ACU). The company indicates that their work on the ACU makes up 50% of the sales of their company and, therefore, the addition of the product to the Procurement List would constitute severe adverse impact on their company.

The Multi-Cam product is a new requirement of the U.S. Army, as aggregated by the Department of the Army Research, Development, and Engineering Command, Natick, MA and has not been procured previously. It does not replace other ACU items produced by other entities, including the company that submitted the comments.

The contracting activity has determined that 50% of their requirement for this new product can be provided by qualified nonprofit agencies associated with the AbilityOne Program. The Committee for Purchase From People Who Are Blind or Severely Disabled (Committee) has reviewed this project and determined that it is suitable for procurement by the government and that it will result in employment of people who are blind or who have other severe disabilities. Accordingly, the Committee has determined that the addition of this product to the Procurement List is proper.

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.

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 services proposed for addition to the Procurement List.

End of Certification

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