Please see the CSU Accessible Procurement Process<http://teachingcommons.cdl.edu/access/procurement_process/index.shtml>. When an inaccessible product or a partially accessible product are the only options we have then CSU has an Equally Effective Alternate Access Plan<http://teachingcommons.cdl.edu/access/procurement_process/EEAAP.shtml> procedure.

Subject: [Athen] Accessible information technology policies question

For those that have an accessible information technology policy on campus (specifically one that includes procurement) - how are acquisitions for which there is no accessible alternative handled?

For example: a program of study wants to acquire a software application that does X. They do a search and are unable to find an accessible application to do X. How does your policy handle this?

Feel free to respond offline, if that is more comfortable.
