About Accessible Procurement
Executive Order 926 mandates CSU campuses to make its programs, services, and activities accessible to individuals with disabilities. This includes students, faculty, staff, and the general public who visit or attend a campus sponsored event. Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 requires the University, including self-support and auxiliaries, to apply accessibility standards to all Electronic and Information Technology (E&IT) products and services that it buys, creates, uses and maintains regardless of cost or funding source.
Cal State Fullerton is committed to using the most accessible technology products and services on our campus. Accessible Procurement applies to all campus technology purchases, including self-support and auxiliaries, irrespective of funding source. Types of products requiring accessibility analysis include, but are not limited to, servers, desktops, laptops, tablets, transaction machines, information kiosks, printers, miscellaneous electronic office equipment, multimedia, software, cloud services, and service contracts.
