AT171 - Acquisition Process - Making Sure You Are in Compliance with Section 508


    The focus of this course will be on incorporating Section 508 into the acquisition process reviewing necessary language for solicitations the use of evaluation criteria and information on accepting deliverables (including whom to contact when questions arise).

    It will also cover using GSA's BuyAccessible Wizard as a key tool in the process. In addition the course will help CO and CORs request and evaluate documentation provided by the contractors (during the RFP stage during contract negotiation and once the contract is awarded).

    This class is worth 3 CLPs of elective/supplemental credit towards one's FAC-COR re-certification.


    Individuals will be able to:
  • Determine Need - Do acquisition deliverables include EIT subject to Section 508?
  • Identify Requirement - Which sections of the Section 508 standard apply to each EIT deliverable?
  • Conduct Market Research - Is accessibility information about EIT deliverables available?
  • Assemble the Solicitation - What does the vendor need to know about my Section 508 requirements?
  • Evaluate and Accept Deliverables - How can the Agency determine if accessibility requirements have been met?
  • Ensure the solicitation itself is fully accessible and 508 conformant.
