Purchasing Requirements

Procurement of Accessible Information Technologies

Vital to the success of accessibility at Sonoma State University is the adoption of accessibility standards for purchasing electronic and IT systems including web applications, hardware, software, telecommunications, multimedia and products such as copiers, fax machines, information kiosks, etc. As the University acquires new resources, they must comply with Section 508.

Procurement Goals

A procurement plan has been drafted to address this priority. Procurement procedures for all electronic & information technology (E&IT) goods and services will be developed and implemented. Training will be provided to the various campus units to support this transition.

  • Develop, train and implement E&IT procurement procedures for acquisitions
  • Develop procedure for providing alternative access for the procurement of electronic and information technology
  • Draft a communication process and training plan to educate the campus regarding Section 508 procurement requirements
