Accessible Technology Initiative Procurement Procedure

The policy of the California State University is to make its’ programs, services, and activities accessible to students, faculty, staff, and the general public who visit or attend a campus-sponsored event, with disabilities.  A component of this policy is to acquire Electronic and Information Technology (E&IT) products that meet this need.  In order to meet this requirement, CSUN departments must analyze their pending requests for E&IT products to ensure that an accessible product is being requested or determine the product is the most accessible product in the marketplace.  This is done by the department via a marketplace analysis.

The products categories for E&IT are:

  • Software applications and operating systems
  • Web-based internet and intranet information and applications
  • Telecommunication products (phone systems, voice mail systems)
  • Video and multimedia products (videos, TV tuners and displays)
  • Self-contained, closed products (printers, fax machines, kiosks, ATMs)
  • Desktop and portable computer

Forms and instructions are provided to assist CSUN departments in requesting E&IT products. All requests for E&IT products that exceed $15,000 (excluding tax) in dollar value must comply with this requirement.

Go to the E&IT Procurement Checklist for Section 508 Compliance for the instructions and checklist.
