Section 508 in the Acquisition Lifecycle
Tuesday, November 26, 2019
The Acquisition Lifecycle supports the accomplishment of every agency’s mission. It provides processes which help agencies procure, validate, and deploy accessible Information and Communication Technology (ICT). What is the process? Who is involved? What are the important steps that must be followed to ensure the acquisition of conformant ICT? This panel of experts will discuss these and other relevant questions about the acquisition lifecycle and the role played by the Revised 508 Standards to ensure that accessible ICT is accurately described in requirements, procured, validated and deployed. This moderated session will discuss issues that can arise government wide, as well as within their respective agencies and how those issues can be addressed by proper planning and program management.
