What to ask Web designers?

Hi again,

I have another question. Hopefully this one is easier than my last one.

This course I am developing is for managers and decision-making types, who
do not necessary have HTML or technical knowledge, and are from non-profits
or small-medium organizations. For those who deal with external Web
designers/developers, I would like to provide a checklist of information
they should check for during the RFP/bidding process to reasonably ensure
the bidder has a clue about Web accessibility.

If the manager includes in the RFP [request for proposals] that the site
must meet the organization's Web accessibility policy and specifies the
policy details, then how can the manager be sure the bidder can provide that
service? What questions should be asked? What information should be
checked? Assume the manager has no clue about ALT attributes, structure vs
presentation, blah blah blah.

Hope that makes sense.
