The Committee for Purchase From People Who Are Blind or Severely Disabled (Committee) operates pursuant to statutory and regulatory requirements. The Committee regulation at 41 CFR 51-2-4 states that for a commodity or service to be suitable for addition to the Procurement List each of the following criteria must be reviewed and determined satisfactory under Committee practice and procedure: Employment potential; nonprofit agency qualifications, capability, and level of impact on the current contractor for the commodity or service. The Javits-Wagner-O'Day (JWOD) Act requires that projects added to the Procurement List must be provided by qualified nonprofit agencies that employ people who are blind or severely disabled for not less than 75% of the direct hours required for the production or provision of products or services during each fiscal year.

Comments were received from a commercial contractor that produces headwear, requesting that one of the proposed items not be added to the Procurement List. The contractor has not in the past, and does not currently, produce the particular item for the government; however, the contractor wants the opportunity to do so in the future. The contractor also implies that the AbilityOne Program has previously impacted his company.

The requirement considered by the Committee has not been previously purchased by the contracting activity. Moreover, the contracting activity has specifically requested that the AbilityOne Program perform the consolidated effort of providing the products and services identified in the Procurement List addition. Consequently, there is no expectation that the contracting activity desires to individually source particular products, nor is there any assurance this contractor would be selected to provide such products. Since this contractor does not currently provide any of the products or services identified in this addition, there can be no claim of adverse impact due to this addition. Therefore, pursuant to its statutory responsibility, the Committee has determined the products and services are suitable for procurement by the government and can be provided by qualified nonprofit agencies employing people who are blind or who have other severe disabilities.
