Have you tried tex4ht like this:
htlatex filename "html,0"
This should create an html file your colleagues could open in word,
edit, save as a doc file and send back. I was thinking you might have
trouble with longtable, but tex4ht appears to have provisions for
htlatex filename "html,3"
will break the output into html files at \sections.
tex4ht runs from the terminal. there are some macros that allow you
to run it from TeXShop, I think, and there is a Mac OS X GUI here:
but I have zero experience with the macros or the GUI, and find the
command line easy to use.
