Vendor Information for Accessibility
Accessibility Policy for Vendors
In order to comply with Sections 504 and 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 as well as the Americans with Disabilities Act, Tri-C’s Online Learning and Academic Technology department asks all current technology vendors to provide us with a current VPAT report, version 2.4 (rev. February 2020). VPAT stands for Voluntary Product Accessibility Template and is a document that explains how a particular piece of information and communication technology meets the standards set forth by WCAG 2.1 guidelines. Anyone with questions regarding the accessibility of a piece of technology at Tri-C should contact the Online Learning and Academic Technology department.
Vendors with questions about creating a VPAT or needing the current VPAT template can visit the GSA Government-wide IT Accessibility Program.
