I heard that Antiword [http://www.winfield.demon.nl/] can convert doc
files into plain text and postscript. Note though, that I have never
used the software myself.

I would also be good to inform the body in question that they are making
a grave mistake and effectively endorsing a commercial product by
forcing people to purchase Microsoft Windows in order to take part in
governmental activities.
