Support for the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) 508 Program Office

Through a subcontract with Vets, Inc., New Editions provided technical support to the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Section 508 Program Office. We tested proposed electronic and information technology (EIT) products for Section 508 conformance within VA's Enterprise Architecture Framework. We also tested IT Tracker products, OMB Exhibit 300's project/programs, E-Government (E-Gov) initiative programs, web-based and software applications, and learning management systems (LMS) courseware for Section 508 compliance. New Editions staff members conducted accessible EIT demonstrations for VA stakeholders (veterans and employees with disabilities), and Section 508 awareness training for VA employees. In collaboration with VA Section 508 staff, we also developed and conducted presentations at industry forums as well as state and local government meetings to raise awareness of accessibility issues and programs.
