The Accessibility Requirements Tool (ART) is a step-by-step guide to help you easily identify relevant accessibility requirements from the Revised 508 Standards, and incorporate them into your procurement and contracting documentation, as well as in-house IT development. GSA’s IT Accessibility Program developed ART as part of its mission to provide technical assistance to federal agencies, to improve compliance with Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act. Use ART to buy and build technology that’s accessible to all.
To start a new procurement, you’ll need to know:
- Your project name
- Your agency
- Your role
- The estimated total value of your acquisition
- What you are procuring (e.g., hardware, software, support documentation, etc.)
Learn how to define the accessible requirements for ICT solicitations using the Accessibility Requirements Tool (ART). Explore ART, and get an overview of ART’s purpose, interface design and key features, and the benefits you gain from using the tool in the acquisition and procurement process.
