SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Addition On 5/17/2019, the Committee for Purchase From People Who Are Blind or Severely Disabled published notice of proposed addition to the Procurement List. The Commission received a public comment from counsel for the current contractor, citing impact on one employee who currently performs this work, lack of experience, and safety concerns for people with severe disabilities as the reasons for his client’s objection to the Commission’s action. The counsel asked the Commission to delay the addition of the service to the Procurement List until he and his client can address the Commission in person. For the reasons described below, the Commission has determined that the proposed Waste Management Services are suitable to be added to the Procurement List. The mission of the AbilityOne Program is to create employment opportunities for people who are blind or severely disabled through the Federal procurement system. In the process of adding products or services to the Program, the Commission is required to perform an impact analysis on the current contractor, which was accomplished with a finding of no severe adverse impact. In accordance with 41 CFR 51–2.4(a)(4), the impact analysis focused on the company, rather than a specific individual. Further, if the project is not added to the AbilityOne Program, the current contractor will have to re-compete for a new contract, with no guarantee of a winning bid. For 23 years, the nonprofit agency proposed to perform the work, CW Resources, Inc. (CWR), has successfully provided similar trash hauling services for the U.S. Coast Guard Academy. This past performance is geographically relevant, as it is also located in New London, CT, making CWR familiar with waste management processes in this area. In addition, CWR is well established in the janitorial line of business, and performs on 46 Procurement List projects that are either purely janitorial/custodial projects or have a custodial component (e.g., PL# 20145065, Janitorial, Grounds and Refuse Collection, U.S. Air Force, Arnold Air Force Base, TN.) Regarding the safety of individuals with significant disabilities, CWR has identified direct labor positions and tasks that can be safely performed by people with significant disabilities. The E:\FR\FM\30AUN1.SGM 30AUN1 45736 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 169 / Friday, August 30, 2019 / Notices waste management work includes janitorial and clerical tasks, both of which are core competencies for CWR and other nonprofit agencies in the AbilityOne Program. CWR will ensure that the candidates for these direct labor tasks have the appropriate documentation of disability to qualify under the definitions in the JavitsWagner-O’Day Act and the Commission’s regulation. The Commission recognizes that some significant disabilities are not physically limiting. Further, the Commission concludes that several of the waste management tasks can be performed by a person with one or more functional limitations described in 41 CFR 51–1.3. The Commentor requested to make an oral presentation to the Commission prior to the Agency’s suitability determination regarding adding this service to the Procurement List. The Commission does not accept meeting requests from current contractors prior to commencing deliberations, as there is no provision in regulation for such meetings. Rather, any public party may request reconsideration after a Commission decision to add a product or service to the PL. After consideration of the material presented to it concerning capability of qualified nonprofit agencies to provide the service and impact of the addition on the current or most recent contractors, the Committee has determined that the services listed below are suitable for procurement by the Federal Government under 41 U.S.C. 8501–8506 and 41 CFR 51–2.4. jspears on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES Regulatory Flexibility Act Certification I certify that the following action will not have a significant impact on a substantial number of small entities.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Addition

    On 5/17/2019, the Committee for Purchase From People Who Are Blind 
or Severely Disabled published notice of proposed addition to the 
Procurement List.
    The Commission received a public comment from counsel for the 
current contractor, citing impact on one employee who currently 
performs this work, lack of experience, and safety concerns for people 
with severe disabilities as the reasons for his client's objection to 
the Commission's action. The counsel asked the Commission to delay the 
addition of the service to the Procurement List until he and his client 
can address the Commission in person. For the reasons described below, 
the Commission has determined that the proposed Waste Management 
Services are suitable to be added to the Procurement List.
    The mission of the AbilityOne Program is to create employment 
opportunities for people who are blind or severely disabled through the 
Federal procurement system. In the process of adding products or 
services to the Program, the Commission is required to perform an 
impact analysis on the current contractor, which was accomplished with 
a finding of no severe adverse impact. In accordance with 41 CFR 51-
2.4(a)(4), the impact analysis focused on the company, rather than a 
specific individual. Further, if the project is not added to the 
AbilityOne Program, the current contractor will have to re-compete for 
a new contract, with no guarantee of a winning bid.
    For 23 years, the nonprofit agency proposed to perform the work, CW 
Resources, Inc. (CWR), has successfully provided similar trash hauling 
services for the U.S. Coast Guard Academy. This past performance is 
geographically relevant, as it is also located in New London, CT,

and performs on 46 Procurement List projects that are either purely

    Regarding the safety of individuals with significant disabilities, 
CWR has identified direct labor positions and tasks that can be safely 
performed by people with significant disabilities. The

waste management work includes janitorial and clerical tasks, both of 
which are core competencies for CWR and other nonprofit agencies in the 
AbilityOne Program. CWR will ensure that the candidates for these 
direct labor tasks have the appropriate documentation of disability to 
qualify under the definitions in the Javits-Wagner-O'Day Act and the 
Commission's regulation. The Commission recognizes that some 
significant disabilities are not physically limiting. Further, the 
Commission concludes that several of the waste management tasks can be 
performed by a person with one or more functional limitations described 
in 41 CFR 51-1.3.
    The Commentor requested to make an oral presentation to the 
Commission prior to the Agency's suitability determination regarding

accept meeting requests from current contractors prior to commencing 
deliberations, as there is no provision in regulation for such 
meetings. Rather, any public party may request reconsideration after a 
Commission decision to add a product or service to the PL.
    After consideration of the material presented to it concerning 
capability of qualified nonprofit agencies to provide the service and 
impact of the addition on the current or most recent contractors, the 
Committee has determined that the services listed below are suitable 
for procurement by the Federal Government under 41 U.S.C. 8501-8506 and 
41 CFR 51-2.4.

    3. There are no known regulatory alternatives which would
