Thanks for the suggestion Tony. As a co-chair, I'll take this as a formal
request and we'll see what we can do to schedule something.

You may be correct. I wonder if the Access Board or someone can arrange a
representative from FAR to attend our next Feb. 6-8 TEITAC so we can discuss
and clarify this further for everyone's benefit?

If I am interpreting the regulations correctly, it appears that the FAR is
required under the Rehab Act to incorporate the changes that the Access
Board promulgates. The following was copied from the "Section 508 of the
Rehabilitation Act (29 U.S.C. 794d), as amended by the Workforce Investment
Act of 1998 (P.L. 105-220), August 7, 1998"
(3) INCORPORATION OF STANDARDS.--Not later than 6 months after the Access
Board publishes the standards required under paragraph (2), the Federal
Acquisition Regulatory Council shall revise the Federal Acquisition
Regulation and each Federal department or agency shall revise the Federal
procurement policies and directives under the control of the department or
agency to incorporate those standards. Not later than 6 months after the
Access Board revises any standards required under paragraph (2), the Council
shall revise the Federal Acquisition Regulation and each appropriate Federal
department or agency shall revise the procurement policies and directives,
as necessary, to incorporate the revisions.
