Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request, 26659 [2018-12357]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 111 / Friday, June 8, 2018 / Notices End of Certification Accordingly, the following service is added to the Procurement List: amozie on DSK3GDR082PROD with NOTICES1 Service Service Type: Warehouse Support Service Mandatory for: NAVSUP Fleet Logistics Center Norfolk, NDW, Supply Management Division, NAVSUP Warehouse, Building 234, 234 Halligan Rd., Annapolis, MD Mandatory Source of Supply: Richmond Area Association for Retarded Citizens, Richmond, VA Contracting Activity: Dept of the Navy, NAVSUP FLT Log CTR Norfolk The U.S. AbilityOne Commission, whose mission is to provide employment opportunities for individuals who are blind or have significant disabilities in the manufacture and delivery of products and services to the Federal Government, received comments from one party with interests in the proposed addition to the Procurement List. The Commenter objected to the addition of warehouse support service requirements at Navy Supply Warehouse, Annapolis, MD to the Procurement List for three reasons: suitability of the work for the AbilityOne Program, inability of a nonprofit agency to maintain the mandatory overall direct labor hour ratio while performing the warehouse support services requirement, and financial and business impact to the small business incumbent. The Commenter questioned whether warehouse support services tasks, including inspecting, receiving and processing materials; utilizing material handling equipment (i.e., box truck, fork lifts, etc.); maintaining accurate records; and cleaning the warehouse are tasks suitable for people with significant disabilities. Pursuant to 41 CFR 51–2.4, the Commission conducts a suitability analysis prior to each Procurement List addition. Similar warehouse support service requirements are currently on the Procurement List, and the Commission has historically considered this type of work requirement suitable for the employment of individuals with significant disabilities. The Commission notes several nonprofit agencies currently perform warehouse support services requirements like the Navy Supply Warehouse, Annapolis, MD, in full compliance with the requirements of the AbilityOne Program. The Commenter also questioned whether a nonprofit agency will be able to maintain the overall direct labor hour ratio requirement of performing 75% of the direct labor hours by people who are blind or significantly disabled. Pursuant VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:53 Jun 07, 2018 Jkt 241001 to 41 U.S.C. 8501(6), a nonprofit agency in the AbilityOne Program must employ blind or significantly disabled individuals at a level no less than 75% of the agency’s overall direct labor hour ratio. The Commission notes that several nonprofit agencies currently perform warehouse support service requirements, like Navy Supply Warehouse, Annapolis, MD, and maintain compliance with the overall 75% direct labor hour requirement. Finally, the Commenter asserted adverse financial and business impact to its operations should the work requirement be added to the Procurement List. The Commission conducted an analysis of a possible severe adverse impact on the Commenter, the incumbent contractor, in accordance with 41 CFR 51–2.4(a)(4) and concluded there was no severe adverse impact.
