9.1.2 VPAT Verification
Created: October 1, 2019
Software purchases that carry with them the need to address accessibility will be reviewed for Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT) compliance.
“A Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT™) is a document that explains how information and communication technology (ICT) products such as software, hardware, electronic content, and support documentation meet (conform to) the Revised 508 Standards for IT accessibility. VPATs™ help Federal agency contracting officials and government buyers to assess ICT for accessibility when doing market research and evaluating proposals.”
Such purchases must be cleared through the SCC Chief Information Officer.
