SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On December 16, 1994, the Committee for 
Purchase From People Who Are Blind or Severely Disabled published 
notice (59 F.R. 65026) of proposed addition to the Procurement List. 
Comments were received from the current contractor for this service in 
response to a request for sales data. The contractor indicated that 
addition of the service to the Procurement List would have a severe 
financial impact on the company and would cause the displacement of 
several workers.
    The Committee has been informed that if the Committee did not add 
this service to the Procurement List, the Government contracting 
activity intended to set it aside for performance by a small 
disadvantaged business under the Small Business Administration's 8(a) 
program. The [[Page 7944]] current contractor is not eligible to 
participate in that program. Consequently, any impact on the contractor 
would occur whether or not the service was added to the Procurement 
    After consideration of the material presented to it concerning 
capability of qualified nonprofit agencies to provide the service, fair 
market price, and impact of the addition on the current or most recent 
contractors, the Committee has determined that the service listed below 
are suitable for procurement by the Federal Government under 41 U.S.C. 
46-48c and 41 CFR 51-2.4.
    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 organizations that will furnish the service to the 
    2. The action does not appear to have a severe economic impact on 
current contractors for the service.
    3. The action will result in authorizing small entities to furnish 
the service to the Government.
    4. There are no known regulatory alternatives which would 
accomplish the objectives of the Javits-Wagner-O'Day Act (41 U.S.C. 46-
48c) in connection with the service proposed for addition to the 
Procurement List.
    Accordingly, the following service is hereby added to the 
Procurement List:

U.S. Coast Guard Air Station
Cape Cod
Otis ANGB, Massachusetts

    This action does not affect current contracts awarded prior to the 
effective date of this addition or options exercised under those
