Procurement

Stanislaus State is committed to using the most accessible technology products and services on our campus. Accessible Procurement applies to Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) that are purchased, used or developed at Stanislaus State. In general, if a product fits into one of these categories, requires user interaction, and involves creating, converting, transferring or duplicating data or information, then it is probably covered.

Examples of ICT are:

Software or Service

  • Operating Systems
  • Application Software
  • Installation programs
  • Software Tools
  • Computer Based Training
  • Web Applications
  • All Website Subscriptions
    (including webinars)

Hardware

  • Telephones
  • Televisions
  • Large Screen Displays
  • Monitors
  • Tablets and iPads
  • Computer
  • Laptops
  • Keyboards
  • Still or Video Cameras
  • Scanner
  • Overhead Projectors

What this means is that Section 508 of the 1973 Rehabilitation Act standards must be applied when developing, acquiring or using ICT products and services. This is also in accordance with CSU policy which requires information technology resources and services accessible to all CSU students, faculty, staff, as well as the general public, regardless of disability.

Thanks for your help in ensuring the products that Stanislaus State purchases are accessible to everyone. For more information about what's involved in the accessible ICT procurement process, please visit the procedures page.
