Buying Accessible IT
New York University purchasers must ensure that the technologies procured for the University are accessible to people with disabilities to the greatest extent possible, as specified by University policy.
Accessibility for Procurement
All personnel who are involved in the procurement, preparation, and maintenance of the NYU Websites are expected to implement measures to advance the NYU Website Accessibility Policy, including by incorporating accessibility into development roadmaps, planning for compliance in the project planning, design, and RFP stages, requiring that vendors' services comply with the Digital Accessibility Benchmarks, and testing for compliance before publication or launch.
NYU's commitment to digital accessibility is grounded not only in principles of equity and inclusion, but also with the knowledge that accessible digital content generally enhances usability for everyone.
