Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT)

A Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT)  is a document that explains how information and communication technology (ICT) products such as software, hardware, electronic content, and support documentation meet (conform to) the Revised 508 Standards for IT accessibility. VPATs  help Federal agency contracting officials and government buyers to assess ICT for accessibility when doing market research and evaluating proposals. 

Government solicitations which include ICT will specify accessibility requirements, indicating which provisions are required to ensure the deliverable is accessible. A VPAT is a good way to address the accessibility requirements defined in the solicitation. 

Quality Matters Standards Accessibility & Usability Standard 8.6 specifically requires that vendor accessibility statements are provided for all technologies that are required for your course(s). If a technology you utilize in your course is not listed below, you must find the accessibility statement and/or the VPAT statement for that tool. You may include accessibility statements in your syllabus, on a resource page within your course or you may link directly to this webpage.
