Accessibility

The Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended (29 U.S.C. 794d) prohibits discrimination on the basis of disability in programs conducted by Federal agencies, in programs receiving Federal financial assistance, in Federal employment, and in the employment practices of Federal contractors. The standards for determining employment discrimination under the Rehabilitation Act are the same as those used in title I of of the Americans with Disabilites Act (ADA). On July 26th, 1990, President George H. W. Bush signed into law the ADA. On August 7th, 1998, President Bill Clinton signed into law the Rehabilitation Act Amendments of 1998. These amendments significantly expanded and strengthened the technology access requirements in Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act. On April 18th, 2001 the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) was revised to implement Section 508 as required by law. Today, the FAR requires all Electronic and Information Technology (EIT) developed, procured, maintained, or used by the Federal Government (effective June 25th, 2001) be accessible to people with disabilities.

The definition of EIT and the accessibility standards were developed by the Access Board. These standards, requirement exceptions, the FAR rule, and a wealth of other information regarding the Federal IT Accessibility Initiative can be found at www.section508.gov. The accessibility standards also can be found at 36 CFR Part 1194.

ActioNet’s Philosophy

ActioNet, Inc. and its employees are committed to making this website, our services, and our products accessible to individuals with disabilities. We incorporate accessibility (Section 508) compliance testing in the design, development, and maintenance of our websites and products. Our work on accessible design is continuous and we welcome feedback on improving the accessibility of our site, services, and products.

ActioNet provides agencies with all information available regarding compliance with accessibility standards, partial compliance, or what accessibility features are offered on products and services provided by ActioNet. Some products which derive from external suppliers/manufacturers are used in conjunction with ones ActioNet produces. ActioNet will refer inquiries to the appropriate supplier/manufacturer for the most current Section 508 information.

Benefits of Accessibility

Our reasons for a strong focus on accessibility extend far beyond the mandates of the ADA and Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act. Structuring our systems and content for use by assistive technologies has multiple benefits beyond simply meeting mandates:

  • We value our stakeholders and desire to have our work available to everyone.
  • We recognize that accessibly designed systems are typically easier for non-experts to use.
  • We believe that having our site structured for assistive technologies positions us well for wireless and other specialized access devices.
