Michael Weinstein, one of the members of the Subpart A Subcommittee shared
an article by Professor Christopher Yukins of George Washington University's
Government Procurement law program. The article is titled Making Federal
Information Technology Accessible: A Case Study in Social Policy and
Procurement. Michael indicates that the article points out many of the
challenges of implementing Section 508 from a procurement prospective. I
don't believe the list serv allows attachments to be sent so I'm including
the link here to get the article directly. I've also included a note and the
link in the Resource Section of the Subpart A section on the Wiki.

Wow! I would strongly encourge folks to read this article (albeit long) as
it provides an extremely coherent discussion of the challenges with current
Subpart A language along with how that relates to the technical and
functional implementation standards. It even provides some information we
have been asking for about bid protests, etc. that has never otherwise

I thought you would be interested in the attached article by Professor
Christopher Yukins of George Washington University's Government Procurement
law program. He formerly was a partner at Holland & Knight and he is a
mentor of mine. The article points out many of the challenges of
implementing Section 508 from a procurement prospective. Of particular
interest is the discussion on "best value" that reiterates some of the
points I have made regarding the current regulations.
