SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) regulations at 5 CFR part 1320, which implement provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.), require that interested members of the public and affected agencies have an opportunity to comment on information collection and recordkeeping activities (see 5 CFR 1320.8(d)). The Committee plans to submit a request to OMB to renew its approval of the collection of information for nonprofit agency responsibilities related to recordkeeping. The Committee is requesting a 3-year term of approval for this information collection activity. Federal agencies may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. The OMB control number for this collection of information is 3037–0005. The Javits-Wagner-O’Day (JWOD) Act of 1971 (41 U.S.C. 46–48c) is the authorizing legislation for the AbilityOne Program. The AbilityOne Program creates jobs and training opportunities for people who are blind or who have other severe disabilities. Its primary means of doing so is by requiring Government agencies to purchase selected products and services from nonprofit agencies employing such individuals. The AbilityOne Program is administered by the Committee.

The implementing regulations for the JWOD Act, which are located at 41 CFR Chapter 51, detail the recordkeeping requirements imposed on nonprofit agencies participating in the AbilityOne Program. Section 51–2.4 of the regulations describes the criteria that the Committee must consider when adding a product or service to its Procurement List. One of these criteria is that a proposed addition must demonstrate a potential to generate employment for people who are blind or severely disabled. The Committee decided that evidence that employment will be generated for those individuals consists of recordkeeping that tracks direct labor and revenues for products or services sold through an AbilityOne Program contract. This recordkeeping can be done on each individual AbilityOne project or by product or service family. In addition, Section 51–4.3 of the regulations requires that nonprofit agencies keep records on direct labor hours performed by each worker and keep an individual record or file for each individual who is blind or severely disabled, documenting that individual’s disability and capabilities for competitive employment. The records that nonprofit agencies must keep in accordance with Section 51–4.3 of the regulations constitute the bulk of the hour burden associated with this OMB control number. This information collection renewal request seeks approval for the Committee to continue to ensure compliance with recordkeeping requirements established by the authority of the JWOD Act and set forth in the Act’s implementing regulations and to ensure that the Committee has the ability to confirm the suitability of products and services on its Procurement List. The recordkeeping requirements described in this document are the same as those currently imposed on nonprofit agencies participating in the AbilityOne Program. • Title: Nonprofit Agency Responsibilities, 41 CFR 51–2.4 and 51– 4.3. • OMB Control Number: 3037–0005. • Description of Collection: Recordkeeping. • Description of Respondents: Nonprofit agencies participating in the AbilityOne Program. • Annual Number of Respondents: About 650 nonprofit agencies will annually participate in recordkeeping.

request to OMB to renew its approval of the collection of information

    The implementing regulations for the JWOD Act, which are located at 
41 CFR Chapter 51, detail the recordkeeping requirements imposed on 
nonprofit agencies participating in the AbilityOne Program. Section 51-
2.4 of the regulations describes the criteria that the Committee must 
consider when adding a product or service to its Procurement List. One 
of these criteria is that a proposed addition must demonstrate a 
potential to generate employment for people who are blind or severely 
disabled. The Committee decided that evidence that employment will be 
generated for those individuals consists of recordkeeping that tracks 
direct labor and revenues for products or services sold through an 
AbilityOne Program contract. This recordkeeping can be done on each 
individual AbilityOne project or by product or service family.
    In addition, Section 51-4.3 of the regulations requires that 
nonprofit agencies keep records on direct labor hours performed by each 
worker and keep an individual record or file for each individual who is 
blind or severely disabled, documenting that individual's disability 
and capabilities for competitive employment. The records that nonprofit 
agencies must keep in accordance with Section 51-4.3 of the regulations 
constitute the bulk of the hour burden associated with this OMB control 
number.

Committee to continue to ensure compliance with recordkeeping 
requirements established by the authority of the JWOD Act and set forth 
in the Act's implementing regulations and to ensure that the Committee 
has the ability to confirm the suitability of products and services on 
its Procurement List. The recordkeeping requirements described in this 
document are the same as those currently imposed on nonprofit agencies 
participating in the AbilityOne Program.
