Promoting Section 508 Compliance in the USFWS

When you create a PowerPoint, Word document, record a video conference session or add content to a website, did you consider everyone can read it. Did you know your creations could be viewed by people that you may never meet?  What impact will that have on those who want to know more about what you are doing?  How about when you want to purchase hardware, software or services? Section 508 was enacted to eliminate barriers to make opportunities available for persons with disabilities, and encourage development of technologies that will help achieve these goals.

As a DOI employee or contractor, we are all responsible for this law that aligns directly with our role in the organization as we have learned from our DOI Learn Records Management/Section 508 mandatory training.

Join us November 30th to identify: 

What is Section 508…? When properly implemented, Section 508 improves the accessibility of government information and data and ensures government information is accessible to Federal employees and citizens with disabilities. Building an accessible infrastructure creates an environment for hiring persons with disabilities.

What’s happening…?
Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 was amended in January 2017. The compliance date for everyone within the FWS to bring electronic and information technology up to the standard is January 18, 2018.

Section 508 applies to all procurement's of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) including: micro-purchases and purchases processed in FBMS; hardware, software, and support services and accessible documentation; accessible electronic documents and forms; and websites, multimedia, and databases. Anyone involved in the procurement process has responsibility to ensure 508 requirements are included.

What you can do right now…
