Voluntary Product Accessibility Templates (VPAT)

In 2001, the Information Technology Industry Council (ITI) partnered with the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) to create a simple, Internet-based tool to assist Federal contracting and procurement officials in fulfilling the new market research requirements contained in the Section 508 implementing regulations. The result was the Voluntary Product Accessibility Template, which significantly assists procurement officials in making preliminary assessments regarding the availability of commercial electronic and information technology products and services by highlighting features that support the Section 508 accessibility criteria.
