The IT Service desk

AKA: ATI, ADA, 508

PURPOSE:

The CSU system has mandated an Accessibility Technology Initiative, and CSUMB has a steering committee in place. The charge is to make technology accessible regardless of a disability.

CSUMB is reviewing its administrative web sites (e.g. CSUMB.EDU and all of its departments) to be compliant with Federal and State law regarding accessible technology. Any new or re-designed sites after September 2007 must already by compliant.

SOFTWARE:

The CSU system underwent a system-wide request for quotation (RFQ) for a new Web-based tool to test and monitor for compliance with accessibility.

CSUMB chose not to participate because our content management system incorporates accessibility checking prior to content being published. We have also developed our own Web-based tool for testing and monitoring compliance.
