508 Compliance Documentation
The CTR process requires submission of a 508 Compliance Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT) statement from the supplying vendor. The purpose of a VPAT is to assist Federal contracting officials and other buyers in making preliminary assessments regarding the availability of commercial “Electronic and Information Technology” products and services with features that support accessibility. Note that not all products require a VPAT statement.
Here are the categories of products for which a VPAT statements must be submitted along with your CTR:
- Software Applications & Operating Systems
- Telecommunications Products
- Web-based Internet Information & Applications
- Video & Multimedia Products
- Self-Contained, Closed Products
- Desktop & Portable Computers
- Information, Documentation and Support
- Functional Performance Criteria
Your vendor should have a prepared VPAT statement they can supply to you.
When purchasing hosted services where a third party will be housing Georgia Tech data, Cyber Security may require a security questionnaire to be completed by the vendor. If OIT Cyber Security contacts you for this information, have the vendor complete the Gergia Tech Third Party Risk Assessment Questionnaire.
