Download as PDF mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES 72666 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 245 / Friday, December 21, 2007 / Notices national, independent organizations, National Industries for the Blind (NIB) and NISH, help State and private nonprofit agencies participate in the AbilityOne Program. 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. VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:37 Dec 20, 2007 Jkt 214001 • Total Annual Burden Hours: The recordkeeping burden is estimated to average 5 hours per respondent. Total annual burden is 3,250 hours. We invite comments concerning this renewal on: (1) Whether the collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of our agency’s functions, including whether the information will have practical utility; (2) the accuracy of our estimate of the burden of the collection of information; (3) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents.
