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:

The Committee for Purchase From People Who Are Blind or Severely Disabled (Committee) operates pursuant to statutory and regulatory requirements. The Committee regulation at 41 CFR part 51-2-4 states that for a commodity or service to be suitable for addition to the Procurement List each of the following criteria must be reviewed and determined satisfactory under Committee practice and procedure: employment potential; nonprofit agency qualifications, capability, and level of impact on the current contractor for the commodity or service. The Javits-Wagner-O'Day (JWOD) Act requires that projects added to the Procurement List must be provided by qualified nonprofit agencies that employ people who are blind or severely disabled for not less than 75% of the direct hours required for the production or provision of products or services during each fiscal year.

Comments were received from the 3 contractors that supply these types of products to the Government. Each contractor indicates that loss of the sales of these or similar products would constitute severe adverse impact on their company. However, following Committee procedures, each contractor submitted financial information requested by the Committee in order to determine the impact of adding these products to the Procurement List. Upon review and consideration of the financial data submitted by the contractors, it is determined that, under Committee procedures, the addition of these products will not constitute severe adverse impact. Accordingly, the Committee has decided to add these products to the Procurement List.
