SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On January 23, February 27, and March 6,

Disabled published notices (63 F.R. 3535, 9999 and 11207) of proposed 
additions to and deletions from the Procurement List.

Additions

    After consideration of the material presented to it concerning 
capability of qualified nonprofit agencies to provide the commodities 
and impact of the additions on the current or most recent contractors, 
the Committee has determined that the commodities listed below are 
suitable for procurement by the Federal Government under 41 U.S.C. 46-
48c and 41 CFR 51-2.4.
    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 commodities to the 
Government.
    2. The action will not have a severe economic impact on current 
contractors for the commodities.
    3. The action will result in authorizing small entities to furnish 
the commodities to the Government.
    4. 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 commodities proposed for addition to the 
Procurement List.
    Accordingly, the following commodities are hereby added to the 
Procurement List:

Infantry Kit, Cold Weather, Marine Corps
    8465-00-NSH-0029
Candle Shipper, Spring Scents
    M.R. 508

    This action does not affect current contracts awarded prior to the 
effective date of this addition or options that may be exercised under 
those contracts.

Deletion

    I certify that the following action will not have a signicant 
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.
    2. The action will not have a severe economic impact on future 
contractors for this service.
    3. The action will result in authorizing small entities to furnish 
the service to the Government.

    4. 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 service deleted from the Procurement List.
    After consideration of the relevant matter presented, the Committee 
has determined that the service listed below is no longer suitable for 
procurement by the Federal Government under 41 U.S.C. 46-48c and 41 CFR 
51-2.4.
    Accordingly, the following service is hereby deleted from the
