Procurement and Contracts for Electronic and Information Resources

When purchasing electronic and information resources, procurement processes follow customary procurement requirements. However, there are additional accessibility requirements. HHS agencies must:

  • purchase assessable electronic and information resources, unless the Executive Commissioner or the HHS agency commissioner approves an exception;
  • include accessibility requirements when developing specifications for electronic and information resource purchases;
  • include an HHS system uniform accessibility clause in solicitations; and
  • monitor to assure goods and services meet accessibility standards.
