Commission

Accessibility

In 1998, Congress amended the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 to require Federal agencies to make their electronic and information technology (EIT) accessible to people with disabilities. The law (29 U.S.C. § 794 (d)) applies to all Federal agencies when they develop, procure, maintain, or use electronic and information technology. Under Section 508, agencies must give employees with disabilities and members of the public access to information that is comparable to access available to others. The United States Access Board discusses its responsibility for developing accessibility standards for EIT to incorporate into regulations that govern Federal procurement practices.

The U.S. AbilityOne Commission (Commission) is committed to making its electronic and information technologies accessible to individuals with disabilities by meeting or exceeding the requirements of Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended. If an individual with a disability believes that the Commission has failed to procure EIT conforming to Section 508, that individual has the right to file a complaint with the Commission.

The Commission shall apply the complaint procedures outlined in 43 CFR Part 17, Subpart E, which are established to implement Section 504 for resolving allegations of discrimination in a Federally conducted program or activity. Complaints must be submitted in writing to the Commission at the following address:
