If the Committee approves the proposed additions, the entities of the Federal Government identified in this notice will be required to procure the services listed below from nonprofit agencies employing persons who are blind or have other severe disabilities.
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 to 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 the Procurement List for production by the nonprofit agencies listed:
Service Type/Location: Dining Facility Attendant and Cook Support Service, Army 7th Special Forces Group, Building 4570, Eglin AFB, FL.
NPA: Lakeview Center, Inc., Pensacola, FL.
Contracting Activity: Dept of the Army, W6QM Ft Bragg Contr Ctr, Fort Bragg, NC.
For this project, the DOD contracting activity specifically identified its requirement as Dining Facility Attendant (DFA) and Cook Support Service in its Performance Work Statement (PWS). The dining facility (DFAC) associated with this service requirement is newly constructed and will be under the control and military management of the 7th Special Forces Group. Food service personnel assigned to the Group will operate and manage the DFAC and will be augmented by contractor-provided DFA.
The PWS describes the DFA service tasks as preparation of vegetables, dining room service (prepare, maintain, clean dining areas; clean condiment containers; clean spills and remove soiled dinnerware; clean dining room tables, chairs, booths; clean dining room walls, baseboards, window ledges, doors, doorframes, ceiling fans, pictures, wall art, artificial plants, light fixtures, etc); buss and replace tray carts during meal serving periods; service and maintain patron self-service area; clean and sanitize food service equipment, utensil cleaning, and dishwashing; clean pots, pans, utensils, storage shelves, and racks; facility maintenance and sanitation; and provide trash and garbage service.
Because the 7th Special Forces Group is a deployable, combat unit, it may be absent from Eglin AFB as its mission and training dictates. Cook support will be required when troop strength is under 75% due to training/deployment/re-deployment. At a minimum, cook support will augment 25% of the military manpower at all times, but is not anticipated to exceed 50% of the required military manpower. The military will retain management and operational control during deployments as a Government (civil service) contracting officer's representative will assume those duties. At no time will the AbilityOne nonprofit agency contractor be responsible for the management and operational control of the DFAC.
