Download as PDF 23640 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 81 / Wednesday, April 27, 2011 / Notices Dated: April 19, 2011. Harry E. Haskins, Associate Administrator for Investment. [FR Doc. 2011–10110 Filed 4–26–11; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 8025–01–P SMALL BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION Small Business Size Standards: Waiver of the Nonmanufacturer Rule U.S. Small Business Administration. ACTION: Notice of intent to waive the Nonmanufacturer Rule for Eyeglass Frames. AGENCY: The U. S. Small Business Administration (SBA) is considering granting a class waiver of the Nonmanufacturer Rule for Optical Eyeglass Frames, Product Service Code (PSC) 6540 (Ophthalmic Instruments, Equipment, and Supplies), under the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) code 339115 (Ophthalmic Goods Manufacturing). According to the request, no small business manufacturers supply this class of products to the Federal Government. Thus, SBA is seeking information on whether there are small business manufacturers of this item. If granted, the waiver would allow otherwise qualified small businesses to supply the product of any manufacturer on a Federal contract set aside for small businesses, Service-Disabled VeteranOwned (SDVO) small businesses or Participants in the SBA’s 8(a) Business Development (BD) program. DATES: Comments and source information must be submitted May 12, 2011. ADDRESSES: You may submit comments and source information to Amy Garcia, Procurement Analyst, Small Business Administration, Office of Government Contracting, 409 3rd Street, SW., Suite 8800, Washington, DC 20416. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ms. Amy Garcia, Procurement Analyst, by telephone at (202) 205–6842; by FAX at (202) 481–1630; or by email at amy.garcia@sba.gov. SUMMARY: Section 8(a)(17) of the Small Business Act (Act), 15 U.S.C. 637(a)(17), and SBA’s implementing regulations require that recipients of Federal supply contracts set aside for small businesses, SDVO small businesses, or Participants in the SBA’s 8(a) BD Program provide the product of a small business manufacturer or processor, if the recipient is other than the actual manufacturer or processor of the WReier-Aviles on DSKGBLS3C1PROD with NOTICES SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:36 Apr 26, 2011 Jkt 223001 product. This requirement is commonly referred to as the Nonmanufacturer Rule. 13 CFR 121.406(b), 125.15(c). 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. 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. 13 CFR 121.1202(c). The SBA defines ‘‘class of products’’ based on the Office of Management and Budget’s NAICS. In addition, SBA uses PSCs to further identify particular products within the NAICS code to which a waiver would apply. The SBA may then identify a specific item within a PSC and NAICS to which a class waiver would apply. The SBA is currently processing a request to waive the Nonmanufacturer Rule for Optical Eyeglass Frames under PSC 6540 (Ophthalmic Instruments, Equipment, and Supplies), under NAICS code 339115 (Ophthalmic Goods Manufacturing). The public is invited to comment or provide source information to SBA on the proposed waiver of the Nonmanufacturer Rule for the product within 15 days after the date of posting in the Federal Register.

The respondents are workers who are renting farmland to others, are involved in the operation of the farm, and want to claim countable income from work they perform relating to the farm.
