February 7, 2013

Prompted by reported disparities across federal agencies in the implementation and management of programs to develop, procure, maintain, and use accessible electronic and information technology as required by section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act, OMB recently issued a Strategic Plan: Improving Management of Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act. This plan outlines several milestones that federal agencies must meet in 2013 and 2014 to increase transparency, strengthen accountability, and improve collaboration across agencies throughout the IT acquisition lifecycle for the consistent management of section 508.
