Order 12866 and the Regulatory Flexibility Act. The agenda lists 
regulations that are currently under development or review or that the 
Committee expects to have under development or review during the next 
12 months. The purpose for publishing this agenda is to advise the

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under Executive Order 12866 (58 FR 51735,

regulations under development or review. The Regulatory Flexibility Act 
(5 U.S.C. 601-612) has a similar agenda requirement (5 U.S.C. 602). 
Under the law, the agenda must list any regulation that is likely to 
have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small 
entities.

     The Office of Management and Budget has issued guidelines 
prescribing the form and content of the regulatory agenda. Under 
those guidelines, the agenda must list all regulatory activities 
being conducted or reviewed in the next 12 months and provide 
certain specified information on each regulation. All of the items 
on this agenda are current or projected rulemakings.

3007. <bullet<ls-thn-eq> GOVERNANCE STANDARDS FOR CENTRAL NONPROFIT 
AGENCIES AND NONPROFIT AGENCIES PARTICIPATING IN THE JAVITS-WAGNER-O'DAY 
PROGRAM




Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant

Legal Authority: 41 USC 46 to 48c

CFR Citation: 41 CFR 51-2; 41 CFR 51-3; 41 CFR 51-4

Legal Deadline: None

Abstract: The Committee for Purchase From People Who Are Blind or 
Severely Disabled (The Committee), which is responsible for 
administering and overseeing the implementation of the Javits-Wagner-
O'Day (JWOD) Act, proposes to amend its regulations by requiring 
nonprofit agencies awarded Government contracts under the authority of 
the JWOD Act, as well as central nonprofit agencies designated by the 
Committee, to comply with new governance standards. The proposed 
governance standards are primarily based on standards that are common 
practice in nonprofit and business communities. These new standards 
would include, among other things, standards concerning the practices 
of boards of directors and the reasonableness of executive and other 
employee compensation. Recent accounts alleging, and public concern 
regarding, isolated instances of excessive compensation packages for 
nonprofit agency executives; a perceived lack of full disclosure in the 
financial reporting of nonprofit agencies; and the absence of formal 
guidelines to establish independent boards of directors for JWOD-
affiliated central nonprofit agencies and nonprofit agencies prompted 
this proposed change. If fully implemented, this change would help 
promote sound governance procedures for central nonprofit agencies and 
nonprofit agencies participating in the JWOD-Program, help ensure the 
effective and transparent administration of Government contract funds, 
and continue to maintain a high level of public support for the JWOD 
Program's employment mission.

Legal Deadline: None

Abstract: The Committee for Purchase From People Who Are Blind or 
Severely Disabled (The Committee), which is responsible for 
administering the Javits-Wagner-O'Day (JWOD) Act, proposes to amend its 
regulations by adding guidelines for Federal agencies' use in 
determining whether commercial commodities are ``essentially the same'' 
as items on the Procurement List. The Procurement List is the official 
list of commodities and services that the Committee has determined to 
be suitable for provision to the Government by nonprofit agencies 
employing people who are blind or who have other severe disabilities 
and that, pursuant to the JWOD Act and the regulations, must be 
purchased from the source designated by the Committee. The guidelines 
for Federal agencies would clarify the meaning and applicability of the 
term ``essentially the same,'' which currently appears but is not 
defined in the Committee's regulations. As such, the guidelines would 
assist Federal employees who make purchasing decisions in complying 
with the JWOD Act.

Abstract: The Committee for Purchase From People Who Are Blind or 
Severely Disabled (The Committee), which is responsible for 
administering and overseeing the implementation of the Javits-Wagner-
O'Day (JWOD) Act, is planning to propose to amend its regulations by 
adding a requirement that for total JWOD project work, the direct labor 
hours performed by people who are blind or severely disabled must be at 
least 75 percent, and for individual JWOD projects, the direct labor 
hours performed by people who are blind or severely disabled must be no 
lower than 60 percent. This proposed rule would also, among other 
things, provide a mechanism for the phase-in of projects that cannot 
initially meet the direct labor hour percentage requirements set forth 
in the proposal.
