Additions

On 7/2/2010 (75 FR 38467-38468) and 7/9/2010 (75 FR 39497-39499), 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 nonprofit agency that was not selected as the designated nonprofit agency to perform the Janitorial and Grounds Service at the Alan Bible Federal Building and Lloyd George U.S. Courthouse in Las Vegas, NV. In its comments, the nonprofit agency questions the fairness of the process used by the central nonprofit agency to identify the nonprofit agency to perform this project.

The Committee for Purchase From People Who Are Blind or Severely Disabled (Committee) operates pursuant to statutory and regulatory requirements. In accordance with these requirements, the Committee has designated central nonprofit agencies to perform certain duties, including facilitating the distribution of Government orders for goods and services among qualified nonprofit agencies. The central nonprofit agencies have established order distribution procedures which include dispute resolution processes. Accordingly, in this instance, if a qualified nonprofit agency questions the fairness of the order distribution process conducted by the central nonprofit agency, they must utilize the established dispute resolution process.

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.
