General Services Administration’s (GSA) Office of Governmentwide Policy (OGP) would like to express our thanks to all those who took the time to complete the Section 508 Outreach Survey. The survey will be used to identify resources sharable among Agency Section 508 Programs, and to inform a comprehensive training and outreach strategy across the IT Accessibility community. In addition, the survey results will be used to enhance and help target GSA’s government-wide Section 508 training, outreach, and technical support to Agencies.
