508 Reporting Template and Baseline Assessment Plan

Tuesday, July 30, 2013

On January 24, 2013, OMB published the “Strategic Plan for Improving Management of Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act - A Framework for Enhancing and Sustaining Management Improvements to Increase the Accessibility of Electronic and Information Technology.” The Strategic Plan required the CIO Council Accessibility Committee (CIOC-AC) to develop a standard government-wide template for agencies to use in reporting baseline compliance of key measures. This template is intended to help agencies conduct a baseline assessment of the maturity and effectiveness of their Section 508 programs. This webinar will provide a detailed explanation of the template, along with guidelines for how to evaluate an agency’s 508 program for purposes of completing the template. Noteworthy deadlines will be identified, and the webinar will describe the Accessibility Committee’s plans for reviewing the initial agency assessments required by the Strategic Plan.
