SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 61247 Additions On August 19, and August 26, 2005, the Committee for Purchase From People Who are Blind or Severely Disabled published notice (70 FR 48667, and 50299) of proposed additions to the Procurement List. The following comments pertain to Stamp 2000 Plus and Accustamp 7520– 00–419–5949 & 7529–01–324–6955: Comments were received from 21 persons in support of the nonprofit agency, urging addition of these products to the Procurement List, as they consider the addition to be critical to the nonprofit agency’s plan to expand services for people with disabilities. The Committee agrees with these commenters that this addition will create jobs for such people. Comments were also received from one of the current contractors for these stamps. The commenter claimed that the stamps the nonprofit agency will be providing under the Committee’s program are made in China, as opposed to the stamps the commenter assembles in the U.S. from components made in Japan and China, and that the Committee should not permit its program to displace U.S. products with Chinese products. The commenter claimed that it has been a Government supplier of the stamps for over 30 years, and has become reliant on these sales, which constitute a small minority of its total sales. The same contractor claimed the nonprofit agency’s stamps are inferior to its own. The commenter asked the Committee to consider whether it could create more jobs by having workers with disabilities package the commenter’s stamps rather than those it intends to produce. Contrary to the commenter’s claims, the nonprofit agency will be using its employees with severe disabilities to assemble and package the stamps in the U.S. from components made in Austria, which is a designated country under the Trade Agreements Act, 19 U.S.C. 2501 et seq. Like the workers they may displace, the persons with severe disabilities who will produce the stamps are U.S. workers, but with an unemployment rate which is well above other groups, so the Committee believes that creating jobs for them, which is the mission of the Committee’s program, is justified in this situation. The commenter, which claimed a long-term reliance on Government sales of these stamps, failed to provide the Committee with total sales data which would enable the Committee to assess the severity of impact of this Procurement List addition, despite being cautioned that the Committee E:\FR\FM\21OCN1.SGM 21OCN1 61248 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 203 / Friday, October 21, 2005 / Notices would interpret a failure to provide data as an indication that the contractor did not consider the impact severe. As for the commenter’s claim that the nonprofit agency’s stamps are inferior, the nonprofit agency has shown the Committee that its stamps meet Government specifications. At this time, it is not feasible for the Committee to require the nonprofit agency to replace its stamp component supplier, as the commenter suggests. The following comments pertain to Stamp Pad Ink and Accustamp (Applies to all other identified stamp NSNs not listed above: Comments were received from 21 persons in support of the nonprofit agency, urging addition of these products to the Procurement List, as they consider the addition to be critical to the nonprofit agency’s plan to expand services for people with disabilities.

The following material pertains to all of the items being added to the Procurement List. After consideration of the material presented to it concerning capability of qualified nonprofit agencies to provide the products and impact of the additions on the current or most recent contractors, the Committee has determined that the products listed below are suitable for procurement by the Federal Government under 41 U.S.C. 46–48c and 41 CFR 51–2.4.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Additions

    On August 19, and August 26, 2005, the Committee for Purchase From 
People Who are Blind or Severely Disabled published notice (70 FR 
48667, and 50299) of proposed additions to the Procurement List.
    The following comments pertain to Stamp 2000 Plus and Accustamp 
7520-00-419-5949 & 7529-01-324-6955:
    Comments were received from 21 persons in support of the nonprofit 
agency, urging addition of these products to the Procurement List, as 
they consider the addition to be critical to the nonprofit agency's 
plan to expand services for people with disabilities. The Committee 
agrees with these commenters that this addition will create jobs for 
such people.
    Comments were also received from one of the current contractors for 
these stamps. The commenter claimed that the stamps the nonprofit 
agency will be providing under the Committee's program are made in 
China, as opposed to the stamps the commenter assembles in the U.S. 
from components made in Japan and China, and that the Committee should 
not permit its program to displace U.S. products with Chinese products. 
The commenter claimed that it has been a Government supplier of the 
stamps for over 30 years, and has become reliant on these sales, which 
constitute a small minority of its total sales. The same contractor 
claimed the nonprofit agency's stamps are inferior to its own. The 
commenter asked the Committee to consider whether it could create more 
jobs by having workers with disabilities package the commenter's stamps 
rather than those it intends to produce.
    Contrary to the commenter's claims, the nonprofit agency will be 
using its employees with severe disabilities to assemble and package 
the stamps in the U.S. from components made in Austria, which is a 
designated country under the Trade Agreements Act, 19 U.S.C. 2501 et 
seq. Like the workers they may displace, the persons with severe 
disabilities who will produce the stamps are U.S. workers, but with an 
unemployment rate which is well above other groups, so the Committee 
believes that creating jobs for them, which is the mission of the 
Committee's program, is justified in this situation.
    The commenter, which claimed a long-term reliance on Government 
sales of these stamps, failed to provide the Committee with total sales 
data which would enable the Committee to assess the severity of impact 
of this Procurement List addition, despite being cautioned that the 
Committee

[[Page 61248]]

would interpret a failure to provide data as an indication that the 
contractor did not consider the impact severe. As for the commenter's 
claim that the nonprofit agency's stamps are inferior, the nonprofit 
agency has shown the Committee that its stamps meet Government 
specifications. At this time, it is not feasible for the Committee to 
require the nonprofit agency to replace its stamp component supplier, 
as the commenter suggests.
    The following comments pertain to Stamp Pad Ink and Accustamp 
(Applies to all other identified stamp NSNs not listed above:

Government specifications. At this time, it is not feasible for the 
Committee to require the nonprofit agency to replace its stamp 
component supplier, as the commenter suggests.
    The following material pertains to all of the items being added to 
the Procurement List.
    After consideration of the material presented to it concerning 
capability of qualified nonprofit agencies to provide the products and 
impact of the additions on the current or most recent contractors, the 
Committee has determined that the products listed below are suitable 
for procurement by the Federal Government under 41 U.S.C. 46-48c and 41 
CFR 51-2.4.

than the small organizations that will furnish the products to the 
Government.
    2. The action will result in authorizing small entities to furnish 
the products 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 proposed for addition to the 
Procurement List.
