CCD Task Force Challenges DOJ Lack of Sec. 508 Oversight
 

 

On March 14, the Consortium for Citizens with Disabilities (CCD) Technology and Telecommunications Task Force wrote to U.S.  Attorney General, Alberto Gonzales, to ask about the Justice Department's delay and disinvestment in the monitoring and reporting activities for Sec. 508 of the Rehabilitation Act.  Sec. 508 of the Rehabilitation Act requires federal agency procurement and deployment of accessible electronic and information technologies. The law requires routine review of Sec. 508 by the U.S. Dept. of Justice; that review work is now four  years late. The CCD Task Force urged the Department to move swiftly to complete the work this year as it could assist the U.S. Access Board as it refreshes the standards for Sec. 508. A copy of  the CCD Telecom and Technology Task Force letter is on the AAPD website at http://www.aapd.com/News/tech/070318ccd.htm
