Aug. 5, 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 preferences.

          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.
