Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 212 / Thursday, November 3, 2005 / Notices business manufacturers or processors available to participate in the Federal market. As implemented in SBA’s regulations at 13 CFR 121.1202(c), in order to be considered available to participate in the Federal market for a class of products, a small business manufacturer must have submitted a proposal for a contract solicitation or received a contract from the Federal government within the last 24 months. The SBA defines ‘‘class of products’’ based on six digit coding systems. Class of products is an individual subdivision within a NAICS Industry Number as established by the Office of Management and Budget in the NAICS Manual, 13 CFR 121.1202(d). The second is the Product and Service Code required as a data entry by the Federal Procurement Data System. The SBA is currently processing a request to waive the Nonmanufacturer Rule for Forklifts Manufacturing, NAICS 333924. The public is invited to comment or provide source information to SBA on the proposed waiver of the Nonmanufacturer Rule for this NAICS code. Authority: 15 U.S.C. 637(a)(17). Dated: October 25, 2005.

ACTION: Notice of intent to waive the Nonmanufacturer Rule for Office Supplies, Paper and Toner. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) is considering granting a waiver of the Nonmanufacturer Rule for Office Supplies, Paper and Toner. The basis of waivers is that no small business manufacturers are supplying these classes of products to the Federal government. The effect of a waiver would be to allow otherwise qualified regular dealers to supply the products of any domestic manufacturer on a Federal contract set aside for small businesses, service-disabled veteran-owned small businesses, or SBA’s 8(a) Business Development Program to provide the products of small business manufacturers or processors on such contracts. The purpose of this notice is VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:27 Nov 02, 2005 Jkt 208001 to solicit comments and potential source information from interested parties.

Section 8(a)(17) of the Small Business Act, (Act) 15 U.S.C. 637(a)(17), requires that recipients of Federal contracts set aside for small businesses, service-disabled veteran-owned small businesses, or SBA’s 8(a) Business Development Program provide the product of a small business manufacturer or processor, if the recipient is other than the actual manufacturer or processor of the product. This requirement is commonly referred to as the Nonmanufacturer Rule. The SBA regulations imposing this requirement are found at 13 CFR 121.406 (b). Section 8(a)(17)(b)(iv) of the Act authorizes SBA to waive the Nonmanufacturer Rule for any ‘‘class of products’’ for which there are no small business manufacturers or processors available to participate in the Federal market. As implemented in SBA’s regulations at 13 CFR 121.1202 (c), in order to be considered available to participate in the Federal market for a class of products, a small business manufacturer must have submitted a proposal for a contract solicitation or received a contract from the Federal government within the last 24 months.

Abstract of Proposed Collection

    The operation of a motor vehicle in the United States by foreign 
mission personnel is a benefit under the Foreign Mission Act, 22 U.S.C. 
4301 et seq. The U.S. Department of State Registration and Title 
application forms (DS-100, DS-100E, DS-101, DS-101E, DS-102, DS-102E, 
DS-104, and DS-104E) are the means by which foreign missions in the 
United States request the registration, titling, and issuance of 
replacement license plates for motor vehicles owned/operated by foreign 
missions, foreign diplomatic and consular personnel, as well as 
specified official representatives of foreign governments to 
international organizations in the United States, and their dependents.

Methodology

    This collection is submitted by all foreign missions in paper 
format on one of four forms; the information is then entered into an 
electronic database, maintained and utilized by the Office of Foreign 
Missions to administer the benefit. Electronic versions of DS-100 and 
DS-101 (DS-100E and DS-101E) were introduced in May 2005 to a few 
foreign missions to test and develop an electronic submission option. 
Electronic versions of the DS-102 and DS-104 (DS-102E and DS-104E) have 
been developed and will be implemented in early 2006. To facilitate the 
collection of information in a more systematic and efficient manner, 
the Office of Foreign Missions will continue to develop the database to 
support an end-to-end electronic submission process, bearing in mind as 
well that utilization of electronic submissions by individual missions 
is dependent on the status of their own systems.
