GSA Government-wide Section 508 Accessibility Program

DOJ Survey

Section 508 directs the Attorney General to prepare and submit a biennial report to the President and Congress on the state of Federal departments/agencies' compliance with the Section 508 standards. The Department of Justice (DOJ) is tasked to conduct this survey of Federal departments/agencies and to prepare this report for the Attorney General. To this end each Federal department/agency is required by Section 508 to provide the Department of Justice with information that is needed to prepare the report. This information is also provided back to the individual departments/agencies for use as a guide to areas that need attention with regard to Section 508 compliance and conformance.
