Regulatory Flexibility Act Certification I certify that the following action will not have a significant impact on a VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:14 Sep 25, 2014 Jkt 232001 substantial number of small entities. The major factors considered for this certification were: 1. The action will not result in any additional reporting, recordkeeping or other compliance requirements for small entities other than the small organization that will provide the service to the Government. 2. The action will result in authorizing a small entity to provide the service to the Government. 3. There are no known regulatory alternatives which would accomplish the objectives of the Javits-WagnerO’Day Act (41 U.S.C. 8501–8506) in connection with the service proposed for addition to the Procurement List. End of Certification Accordingly, the following service is added to the Procurement List: Service: Service Type/Location: Fleet Maintenance Service, U.S. Department of Energy, National Nuclear Security Administration, Agent Operations Eastern Command, Office of Secure Transportation, Transportation Safeguards Training Site, Fort Chaffee, AR, 11408 Roberts Blvd., Fort Smith, AR. NPA: Skookum Educational Programs, Bremerton, WA Contracting Activity: Department of Energy, National Nuclear Security Administration Business Services Division, Washington, DC. Comments were received from two commercial contractors. One contractor wanted to ensure that the Commission had a clear understanding of the scope of work associated with this project so as not to put the government requirements or safety of employees at risk when performing the work. The contractor then summarized some tasks that it indicated required exposure to potentially hazardous situations and performance during possible inclement weather on a 24/7/365 basis. The Committee For Purchase From People Who Are Blind or Severely Disabled (Committee) appreciates the information provided in the comments and has considered it along with substantial additional information to ensure that the service is suitable for procurement by the government from a designated nonprofit agency employing people with significant disabilities. Comments from the other contractor questioned whether the requirements of this project can be performed safely and efficiently by people with significant disabilities. The contractor, noting the type of work and the remote locations where it must be supported, stated that it appeared to be unsuitable for addition PO 00000 Frm 00022 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 to the Procurement List. The contractor, as a veteran-owned small business was also anticipating the opportunity to bid on this work and stated that adding the service to the Procurement List would be unfair advantage to the nonprofit agency designated to perform the service. In accordance with the Javits-WagnerO’Day Act, the Presidentially-appointed members of the Committee must be satisfied of the suitability of each proposed service before deciding whether to add the service to the Procurement List. This includes ensuring that the nonprofit agency designated to perform the service is qualified and capable to meet Government quality standards and delivery schedule. After conducting its deliberative review, the Committee has concluded that the designated nonprofit agency can safely and efficiently perform the service while meeting the Government standards and delivery schedule. The Committee is aware that the designated nonprofit agency currently performs other fleet maintenance services for the contracting activity at another location. Finally, the Committee is aware that service projects added to the Procurement List preclude other entities from competing for the work. However, the Committee is responsible to implement the Government’s policy of increasing employment opportunities for people who are blind or significantly disabled. By doing so, the Committee realizes that this service will not be available to be procured through competitive means. After fully considering all appropriate information, including the comments, the Committee is adding the service to the Procurement List. Deletions On 8/15/2014 (79 FR48126–48127), the Committee for Purchase From People Who Are Blind or Severely Disabled published notice of proposed deletions from the Procurement List.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Addition

    On 6/6/2014 (79 FR 32716-32718), the Committee for Purchase From 
People Who Are Blind or Severely Disabled published notice of proposed 
addition to the Procurement List.
    After consideration of the material presented to it concerning 
capability of qualified nonprofit agency to provide the service and 
impact of the addition on the current or most recent contractors, the 
Committee has determined that the service listed below is suitable for 
procurement by the Federal Government under 41 U.S.C. 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 any additional reporting, 
recordkeeping or other compliance requirements for small entities other 
than the small organization that will provide the service to the 
Government.
    2. The action will result in authorizing a small entity to provide 
the service to the Government.
    3. There are no known regulatory alternatives which would 
accomplish the objectives of the Javits-Wagner-O'Day Act (41 U.S.C. 
8501-8506) in connection with the service proposed for addition to the 
Procurement List.

End of Certification

    Accordingly, the following service is added to the Procurement 
List:
    Service:
    Service Type/Location: Fleet Maintenance Service, U.S. Department 
of Energy, National Nuclear Security Administration, Agent Operations 
Eastern Command, Office of Secure Transportation, Transportation 
Safeguards Training Site, Fort Chaffee, AR, 11408 Roberts Blvd., Fort 
Smith, AR.
    NPA: Skookum Educational Programs, Bremerton, WA
    Contracting Activity: Department of Energy, National Nuclear 
Security Administration Business Services Division, Washington, DC.
    Comments were received from two commercial contractors. One 
contractor wanted to ensure that the Commission had a clear 
understanding of the scope of work associated with this project so as 
not to put the government requirements or safety of employees at risk 
when performing the work. The contractor then summarized some tasks 
that it indicated required exposure to potentially hazardous situations 
and performance during possible inclement weather on a 24/7/365 basis. 
The Committee For Purchase From People Who Are Blind or Severely 
Disabled (Committee) appreciates the information provided in the 
comments and has considered it along with substantial additional 
information to ensure that the service is suitable for procurement by 
the government from a designated nonprofit agency employing people with 
significant disabilities.
    Comments from the other contractor questioned whether the 
requirements of this project can be performed safely and efficiently by 
people with significant disabilities. The contractor, noting the type 
of work and the remote locations where it must be supported, stated 
that it appeared to be unsuitable for addition to the Procurement List. 
The contractor, as a veteran-owned small business was also anticipating 
the opportunity to bid on this work and stated that adding the service 
to the Procurement List would be unfair advantage to the nonprofit 
agency designated to perform the service.
    In accordance with the Javits-Wagner-O'Day Act, the Presidentially-
appointed members of the Committee must be satisfied of the suitability 
of each proposed service before deciding whether to add the service to 
the Procurement List. This includes ensuring that the nonprofit agency 
designated to perform the service is qualified and capable to meet 
Government quality standards and delivery schedule. After conducting 
its deliberative review, the Committee has concluded that the 
designated nonprofit agency can safely and efficiently perform the 
service while meeting the Government standards and delivery schedule. 
The Committee is aware that the designated nonprofit agency currently 
performs other fleet maintenance services for the contracting activity 
at another location.
    Finally, the Committee is aware that service projects added to the 
Procurement List preclude other entities from competing for the work. 
However, the Committee is responsible to implement the Government's 
policy of increasing employment opportunities for people who are blind 
or significantly disabled. By doing so, the Committee realizes that 
this service will not be available to be procured through competitive 
means. After fully considering all appropriate information, including 
the comments, the Committee is adding the service to the Procurement 
List.

Deletions

    On 8/15/2014 (79 FR48126-48127), the Committee for Purchase From 
People Who Are Blind or Severely Disabled published notice of proposed

    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 U.S.C. 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:

other compliance requirements for small entities.
    2. The action may result in authorizing a small entity to furnish 
the products to the Government.
