Commitment to Accessibility

Computrition is committed to making its electronic and information technologies accessible to a broad range of people, including individuals with disabilities. Therefore, Computrition complies with the regulations of Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.

Section 508 Compliance

In essence, Section 508 requires federal agencies to make all electronic and information technology (EIT) accessible to individuals with disabilities without placing undue burden on the agency. The requirements of Section 508 pertain to an agency’s acquisition of EIT, as well as the agency’s development, maintenance, or employment of EIT.

Although federal agencies are required to make all EIT compliant with Section 508, individuals may only file complaints or lawsuits to enforce Section 508’s requirements for EIT systems purchased or deployed on or after June 21, 2001. Visit¬†FAR Final Rule for more information.

Section 501 and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act outline additional responsibilities for federal agencies:

  • Offer reasonable accommodation to employees who have disabilities
  • Ensure that public citizens with disabilities can access EIT
  • Perform necessary actions to prevent discrimination based on disability within programs
