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. If approved, the action will not result in any additional reporting, recordkeeping or other compliance requirements for small entities other than the small organizations that will provide the services to the Government.

2. If approved, the action will result in authorizing small entities provide 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.

Comments on this certification are invited. Commenters should identify the statement(s) underlying the certification on which they are providing additional information.

End of Certification

The following services are proposed for addition to Procurement List for production by the nonprofit agencies listed:

Service Type/Location: Full Food Service USMA Preparatory School West Point, NY

NPA: New Dynamics Corporation, Middletown, NY

Contracting Activity: Mission And Installation Contracting Command—West Point, NY

The DoD contracting activity identified its requirements as Full Food Service; therefore, as required, initially offered this opportunity to the New York State Commission for the Blind and Visually Handicapped Business Enterprise Program (NYCBVH) under the Randolph-Sheppard Act (RSA). The NYCBVH notified the contracting activity via letters on November 2, 2010 and December 1, 2010, that they would not be exercising its priority to provide the services under the RSA and would not disturb the status quo if the project is awarded to another vendor. Accordingly, after coordination with the contracting activity, this project is being considered for addition to the AbilityOne Procurement List.
