Additions

    On 6/10/2011 (76 FR 34064-34065) and 7/22/2011 (76 FR 43990-43991), 
the Committee for Purchase From People Who Are Blind or Severely

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

    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 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 a commercial contractor that 
produces headwear, requesting that one of the proposed items not be 
added to the Procurement List. The contractor has not in the past, 
and does not currently, produce the particular item for the 
government; however, the contractor wants the opportunity to do so 
in the future. The contractor also implies that the AbilityOne 
Program has previously impacted his company.
    The requirement considered by the Committee has not been 
previously purchased by the contracting activity. Moreover, the 
contracting activity has specifically requested that the AbilityOne 
Program perform the consolidated effort of providing the products 
and services identified in the Procurement List addition. 
Consequently, there is no expectation that the contracting activity 
desires to individually source particular products, nor is there any 
assurance this contractor would be selected to provide such 
products. Since this contractor does not currently provide any of 
the products or services identified in this addition, there can be 
no claim of adverse impact due to this addition. Therefore, pursuant 
to its statutory responsibility, the Committee has determined the 
products and services are suitable for procurement by the government 
and can be provided by qualified nonprofit agencies employing people 
who are blind or who have other severe disabilities.
