2005: Possible Good News for White Male Federal Contractors!
The United States Commission on Civil Rights reports that the federal government does not
properly consider race-neutral alternatives to race-based contracting
| On August 5, 2005
the Commission released a 185 page report titled Federal Procurement After
Adarand in which the Commission roundly criticizes the federal contracting
practice of routinely giving racial preferences to selected minorities.
Federal agencies should first give the most serious consideration to race-neutral
alternatives for helping smaller, less advantaged businesses obtain federal contracting
work. Racial preferences, says the Commission, should only be used as a last resort
after all other race-neutral alternatives have been exhausted.
