Glove, Mechanic’s A commercial company submitted comments objecting to the proposed addition. The comments from the PO 00000 Frm 00017 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 company states that they manufacture gloves they claim ‘‘could be considered similar’’ to the gloves identified in the notice of proposed addition to the Procurement List. The company asserts that the nonprofit agency identified to produce the gloves described in the proposed Procurement List addition notice also packages and distributes other gloves in a manner which may violate certain federal statutes. The company asserts that the packaging and distribution of already manufactured products adds minimal value and does not constitute substantial transformation of the product sufficient to place the item on the Procurement List. In this instance, the description of the work performed by the nonprofit agency sufficiently describes the actions the employees who are blind or have other severe disabilities will perform in order to provide the gloves to the government. The remaining claims of the company are speculative in nature and not related to the particular product being considered by the Committee. Nonetheless, the nonprofit agency provided a letter that certifies its intent to provide the mechanic’s gloves in compliance with the Acts cited by CamelBak in its correspondence to the Committee. Therefore, in accordance with its statutory and regulatory obligations, the Committee has evaluated this project and determined it suitable for addition to the Procurement List. Gloves, Impact The Committee for Purchase From People Who Are Blind or Severely Disabled (Committee) operates pursuant to statutory and regulatory requirements. Committee regulations states that for a commodity or service to be suitable for addition to the Procurement List each of the following criteria must be satisfied: employment potential; nonprofit agency qualifications, capability, and level of impact on the current contractor for the commodity or service. A commercial company submitted comments objecting to the proposed addition. The comments from the company states that they manufacture gloves they claim ‘‘could be considered similar’’ to the gloves identified in the notice of proposed addition to the Procurement List. The company asserts that the nonprofit agency identified to produce the gloves described in the proposed Procurement List addition notice, also packages and distributes other gloves in a manner which may violate the Trade Agreement Act. The company further states that the subject gloves may be manufactured in E:\FR\FM\25JNN1.SGM 25JNN1
