SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Chapter 19 of the North American Free Trade Agreement (‘‘Agreement’’) established a mechanism to replace domestic judicial review of final determinations in antidumping and countervailing duty cases involving imports from a NAFTA country with review by independent binational panels. When a Request for Panel Review is filed, a panel is established to act in place of national courts to review expeditiously the final determination to determine whether it conforms with the antidumping or countervailing duty law of the country that made the determination. Under Article 1904 of the Agreement, which came into force on January 1, 1994, the Government of the United States, the Government of Canada, and the Government of Mexico established Rules of Procedure for Article 1904 Binational Panel Reviews (‘‘Rules’’). These Rules were published in the Federal Register on February 23, 1994 (59 FR 8686). The panel review in this matter was requested and terminated pursuant to these Rules. Dated: July 5, 2013.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Commission previously published a notice in the Federal Register (71 FR 69535, Dec 1, 2006) that established the General Services Administration (GSA) as the AbilityOne Program’s only responsible contracting activity for products within the first category (the A List) and second category (the B List) purchased by Federal employees. The responsible contracting activity for SUMMARY: E:\FR\FM\26JYN1.SGM 26JYN1 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 144 / Friday, July 26, 2013 / Notices products within the third category (the C List) is a Government agency (civil and military) which represents the endusers of the specialized or niche product(s) within this category. In order to take full advantage of the Department of Defense (DoD) 4140.1–R, DoD Supply Chain Materiel Management Regulation, the AbilityOne Program is designating the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) as an additional contracting activity for products within the A List and B List categories.

The AbilityOne Program’s addition of DLA as an additional contracting activity for products that have the Procurement List procurement preference across all entities of the Government (A List) or that have purchasing preference across a broad selection of Federal agencies (B List) is supported by this regulation. This change enhances the availability of AbilityOne Program products to Government agencies (civil and military) regardless of which organization (DLA or GSA) manages a particular Federal Supply Classification.

COMMITTEE FOR PURCHASE FROM PEOPLE WHO ARE BLIND OR SEVERELY DISABLED


Clarification of Sourcing Requirements for the Procurement List

AGENCY: Committee for Purchase From People Who Are Blind or Severely 
Disabled.

ACTION: Clarification of Sourcing Requirements for Commodities and 
other Products on the Procurement List that have been identified as 
Satisfying Government-wide Requirements

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Committee for Purchase From People Who Are Blind or 
Severely Disabled (operating as the U.S. AbilityOne Commission 
(Commission)) is clarifying the sourcing requirements for commodities 
and other products on the Procurement List that have been identified 
for satisfying Government-wide requirements and thus subject to the 
AbilityOne Program's Government-wide procurement preference. The full 
list of products with this Government-wide procurement preference 
furnished under the auspices of the Javits-Wagner-O'Day Act (41 U.S.C. 
8501-8506) and the AbilityOne Program is posted at www.abilityone.gov. 
Changes to the responsible contracting activity designations as 
published in the Federal Register on December 1, 2006, are identified 
in this notice.

DATES: Effective Date: The changes delineated are effective the date of 
this notice.

ADDRESSES: Committee for Purchase From People Who Are Blind or Severely 
Disabled, 1401 S. Clark Street, Arlington, VA 22202--4149.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Commission previously published a notice 
in the Federal Register (71 FR 69535, Dec 1, 2006) that established the 
General Services Administration (GSA) as the AbilityOne Program's only 
responsible contracting activity for products within the first category 
(the A List) and second category (the B List) purchased by Federal 
employees. The responsible contracting activity for

[[Page 45183]]

products within the third category (the C List) is a Government agency 
(civil and military) which represents the end-users of the specialized 
or niche product(s) within this category.
    In order to take full advantage of the Department of Defense (DoD) 
4140.1-R, DoD Supply Chain Materiel Management Regulation, the 
AbilityOne Program is designating the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) as 
an additional contracting activity for products within the A List and B 
List categories. The DoD 4140.1-R, May 23, 2003, AP7: Appendix 7, 
Agreement between the Department of Defense and the General Services 
Administration Governing Supply Management Relationships Under the 
National Supply System provides DLA the authority to procure and supply 
certain assigned products for the entire Government within the terms of 
that Agreement. The AbilityOne Program's addition of DLA as an 
additional contracting activity for products that have the Procurement 
List procurement preference across all entities of the Government (A 
List) or that have purchasing preference across a broad selection of 
Federal agencies (B List) is supported by this regulation. This change 
enhances the availability of AbilityOne Program products to Government 
agencies (civil and military) regardless of which organization (DLA or 
GSA) manages a particular Federal Supply Classification.
    When proposing to add a product to its Procurement List, the 
Commission's notices published in the Federal Register will continue to 
identify the category group (A List, B List, or C List) as described in 
its December 2006 Federal Register notice. The notices will also 
identify the relevant contracting activity responsible for aggregating 
requirements with AbilityOne products that have purchasing preference. 
All other aspects of the December 2006 Federal Register notice remain 
in effect.
