ICT Procurement

CSU Policy:

In 2003, California Government Code 11135 applied Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act as amended in 1998 to the CSU.

In January 2006, the CSU launched the Accessible Technology Initiative (ATI) in order to develop the work plan, guidance, and resources to assist campuses in carrying out the accessible technology provisions of 
The California State University Board of Trustees Policy on Disability Support and Accommodations - CSU Executive Order 926
 (EO):

"It is the policy of the CSU to make information technology resources and services accessible to all CSU students, faculty, staff, and the general public regardless of disability."

Given the nature of this Executive Order, the CSU identified a plan addressing the following three areas:

  1. Web Accessibility
  2. Instructional Materials Accessibility
  3. Accessible Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Procurement
