After consideration of the material presented to it concerning 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 product 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. A comment was received from a clock manufacturer who objected to this proposed addition to the Procurement List, stating that this proposed addition, and previous actions by the Committee, has seriously impacted its company’s clock sales.

The commenter did not provide revenue data as requested by original notice. In addition, the commenter’s claims about ceilings being established for the nonprofit agency’s market share could not be confirmed. The Committee’s purpose in this proposed addition to the Procurement List is to create jobs for people who are blind, not to bolster the proposed nonprofit’s financial condition.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On July 27 and August 3, 2007, the Committee 
for Purchase From People Who Are Blind or Severely Disabled published 
notice (72 FR 41289; 43230) of proposed additions to the Procurement 
List.
    After consideration of the material presented to it concerning 
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 product 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.
    A comment was received from a clock manufacturer who objected to 
this proposed addition to the Procurement List, stating that this 
proposed addition, and previous actions by the Committee, has seriously 
impacted its company's clock sales. The commenter claimed to have 
previously been advised that ``only 50% of the Government clocks would 
be set-aside'' and the proposed nonprofit agency ``would not be 
involved in the commercial market.'' Finally, the commenter said that 
the proposed nonprofit's financial condition was such that further 
``protection'' by the Committee was unnecessary.
    The commenter did not provide revenue data as requested by original 
notice. In addition, the commenter's claims about ceilings being 
established for the nonprofit agency's market share could not be 
confirmed. The Committee's purpose in this proposed addition to the 
Procurement List is to create jobs for people who are blind, not to 
bolster the proposed nonprofit's financial condition. Consequently, the 
Committee determines that there is no significant impact from including 
this proposed addition on the Procurement List.
