Procurement List Proposed Additions, 52512-52513 [2013-20625]

Download as PDF tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 52512 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 164 / Friday, August 23, 2013 / Notices The Commission’s regulations, specifically the section cited, require the Commission to consider the level of impact on the current contractor for the commodity or service being considered for addition to the Procurement List as part of its determination that a product or service is suitable. The Commission defines the current contractor as the commercial source from which the responsible Government contracting activity is procuring the product or service that is the subject of a proposed addition. Accordingly, the Commission’s impact analysis finding was that the Army Contracting Command—Aberdeen Proving Ground Natick Contracting Division, on behalf of PM FSS, does not have a current contract for the provision of Integrated Prime Vendor Supply Chain Management Service. Previously, PM FSS has obtained various requirements for equipment or related material through use of various DLA Prime Vendor contracts, under DLA’s Special Operational Equipment Tailored Logistics Support and/or Fire Emergency Services Programs. No single vendor was guaranteed to receive orders from PM FSS; many other DOD customers make use of the prime vendor contracts. PM FSS requirements for kitting or other supply chain management services required were obtained through the DLA depot system. The commenter also questioned whether the objectives of the proposed addition were in opposition to the goal of the AbilityOne Program to create employment opportunities for people who are blind or have other significant disabilities. 41 CFR 51–2.4 Determination of Suitability requires the Commission to consider the employment potential of each proposed addition before it can determine a product or service suitable for addition to the Procurement List. In this case, the Commission determined that there is employment potential for the workforce of people who are significantly disabled in the provision of acquisition support services, kitting, manufacturing and design, and warehousing. The designated nonprofit agency has identified Full Time Equivalent positions for more than 33 individuals with significant disabilities in the delivery of services. The commenter specifically questioned whether the nonprofit agency would be a pass-through to large subcontractors, therefore not maximizing the potential for employment of people who are blind or significantly disabled. Commission regulations permit the subcontracting of a portion of the process for producing a VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:28 Aug 22, 2013 Jkt 229001 product or providing a service on the Procurement List, provided that the portion of the process retained by the nonprofit agency generates employment for people who are blind or have significant disabilities. Subcontracting that is intended to be a routine part of production is required to be identified to the Commission at the time of proposed addition and any changes in the extent of subcontracting must be approved in advance by the Commission. In this case, the Commission determined that the proposed subcontracting is consistent with its regulations and that the portion of the work retained will create employment for people who are blind or significantly disabled. Deletions On 7/19/2013 (78 FR 43180), the Committee for Purchase From People Who Are Blind or Severely Disabled published notice of proposed deletions from the Procurement List. After consideration of the relevant matter presented, the Committee has determined that the products listed below are no longer suitable for procurement by the Federal Government under 41 USC 8501–8506 and 41 CFR 51–2.4. Regulatory Flexibility Act Certification I certify that the following action will not have a significant impact on a substantial number of small entities. The major factors considered for this certification were: 1. The action will not result in additional reporting, recordkeeping or other compliance requirements for small entities. 2. The action may result in authorizing small entities to provide the products to the Government. 3. There are no known regulatory alternatives which would accomplish the objectives of the Javits-WagnerO’Day Act (41 USC 8501–8506) in connection with the products deleted from the Procurement List. End of Certification Accordingly, the following products are deleted from the Procurement List: Products NSN: 8125–00–NIB–0031—Spray Bottle, Green Solutions High Dilution 256 Neutral Disinfectant, Silk Screened, 12–32oz bottles NPA: Susquehanna Association for the Blind and Vision Impaired, Lancaster, PA Contracting Activity: Department of Veterans Affairs, National Acquisition Center, Hines, IL PO 00000 Frm 00017 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 NSN: 8465–01–592–1361—Sheath, Combination Tool Plastic NPA: Development Workshop, Inc., Idaho Falls, ID Contracting Activity: General Services Administration, Fort Worth, TX Barry S.

Type of Review: New collection of information (request for new OMB control number). Affected Public: Individuals or households; business or other for-profit; and not-for-profit institutions. Estimated Number of Respondents: 3. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 15. Abstract: The Equal Access to Justice Act (the Act) provides for payment of fees and expenses to eligible parties who have prevailed against the Bureau in certain administrative proceedings. In order to obtain an award, the statute and associated regulations (12 CFR part 1071) require the filing of an application that shows that the party is a prevailing party and is eligible to receive an award under the Act. The Bureau regulations implementing the Act require the collection of information related to the application for an award in 12 CFR part 1071, Subparts B, C. On June 29, 2012, the Bureau published in the Federal Register an interim final rule implementing the Act. 77 FR 39117. At that time, the Bureau adopted the position that the rule did not contain any information collection requirements that required the approval of OMB under the Paperwork Reduction Act (the ‘‘PRA’’), 44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq. The Bureau has since changed its interpretation and now adopts the position that the rule does contain information collection requirements that require the approval of OMB under the PRA and invites the general public and other Federal agencies to comment on the proposed information collections. Request for Comments: Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the collection of PO 00000 Frm 00018 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 52513 information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Bureau, including whether the information will have practical utility; (b) The accuracy of the Bureau’s estimate of the burden of the collection of information, including the validity of the methods and the assumptions used; (c) Ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) Ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. Comments submitted in response to this notice will be summarized and/or included in the request for OMB approval. All comments will become a matter of public record. Dated: August 20, 2013.
