IT Accessibility Standards, Website Standards, Website Guidelines

In order to guarantee access to all Virginians, any website that is the property of the Commonwealth of Virginia must fully meet federal and state accessibility law. The official effective date of the commonwealth's most recent standards is November 4, 2005. All executive branch agencies and institutions of higher education should reference this official date in their plans for mandatory compliance with the standards.

As a reminder to agencies needing assistance in meeting the standards, the Department for the Aging and Rehabilitative Services (DARS) and VITA have provided multiple and ongoing resources to assist Webmasters, including a seat license at no cost for compliance software and a comprehensive website which offers extensive assistance,

If you need assistance, the VITA team has worked through the process and can help you; please don't hesitate to contact
