SMALL BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION

13 CFR Part 121

RIN 3245-AG29


Small Business Size Standards; Educational Services; Correction

AGENCY: U.S. Small Business Administration.

ACTION: Correcting amendment.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This document corrects the U.S. Small Business 
Administration's (SBA) final rule that appeared in the Federal Register 
on Monday, September 24, 2012. The rule, effective October 24, 2012, 
increased small business size standards for nine industries in North 
American Industry Classification System (NAICS) Sector 61, Educational 
Services, while retaining the existing size standards for the remaining 
eight industries and the Job Corps Centers exception under NAICS 
611519, Other Technical and Trade Schools, within that Sector. However, 
the Job Corps Centers exception and its size standard were deleted in 
error from SBA's table of size standards. This correction reinstates 
the Job Corps Centers exception under NAICS 611519 and its $35.5 
million size standard.

DATES: Effective June 17, 2013 and is applicable beginning October 24, 
2012.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Khem Sharma, Chief, Office of Size 
Standards, U.S. Small Business Administration, 409 Third Street SW., 
Washington, DC 20416.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In FR Doc. 2012-23373, appearing on page 
58739 in the September 24, 2012 issue of the Federal Register (77 FR 
58739) a correction is necessary on page 58746. Specifically, SBA 
increased the size standard for NAICS 611519 from $7 million to $14 
million in average annual receipts but retained the $35.5 million size 
standard for the Job Corps Centers exception to that industry. The 
supplementary information in the final rule provided a detailed 
explanation of why SBA was retaining its current $35.5 million size 
standard for the Job Corps Centers exception. However, the Job Corps 
Centers exception to NAICS 611519 and its size standard were deleted in 
error from SBA's table of size standards in 13 CFR 121.201.

Need for Correction

    This action is needed to correct the table in 13 CFR 121.201 by 
reinstating the Job Corps Centers exception under NAICS 611519 and its 
corresponding $35.5 million size standard. As published, the final rule 
and CFR can lead a reader to conclude incorrectly that SBA deleted the 
Job Corps Centers exception and its $35.5 million size standard from 
SBA's table of size standards. SBA had explained in the final rule why 
it was retaining the existing $35.5 million size standard for Job Corps 
Centers instead of changing it. When the rule was published in the 
Federal Register, the entry for ``611519'' was revised, with no change 
to the $35.5 million size standard for the Job Corps Centers exception 
under that entry. However, this appears to have been read as the 
removal of Job Corps Centers exception and its $35.5 million size 
standard, resulting in their deletion from the table in 13 CFR 121.201.

List of Subjects in 13 CFR Part 121

Government property, Grant programs--business, Individuals with 
disabilities, Loan programs--business, Reporting and recordkeeping

  solicitation must be for the management and operation of a U.S. Department of Labor Job Corps Center. The
  activities involved include admissions activities, life skills training, educational activities, comprehensive
  career preparation activities, career development activities, career transition activities, as well as the
  management and support functions and services needed to operate and maintain the facility. For SBA assistance
  as a small business concern, other than for Federal Government procurements, a concern must be primarily
  engaged in providing the services to operate and maintain Federal Job Corps Centers.
