Section 508 Best Practices Webinar: Introduction to Policy-Driven Adoption for Accessibility

Date: Tuesday, August 23, 2016
Description: From 1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. ET

Hosted by AccessibilityOnline, a collaborative training program between the ADA National Network and the US Access Board, this webinar will cover Policy-Driven Adoption for Accessibility (PDAA), a new approach some states have implemented to evaluate product accessibility when procuring information technology. PDAA should not be considered an alternative to existing processes and requirements, such as contract terms and product specific accessibility documentation, but rather as additional information about a vendor’s ability and commitment to produce accessible offerings in a consistent manner.

The intended audience for this training is Section 508 coordinators and anyone who is responsible for accessible procurements of IT, such as requiring officials, end users, IT managers and Section 508 program managers.
