10.3 Section 508

10.3.4 Defining requirements under Section 508

When developing requirements for any IT procurement, the agency should be familiar with Section 508 requirements and determine which technical provisions apply to the IT goods or services being procured. In addition, market research should be performed to determine the availability of products and services that meet the applicable technical provisions. The agency should determine if Section 508 products or services are available in the marketplace or if the product or service would be eligible for an exception such as non-availability or undue burden.
