A Promising Practice: The Department of Education's Leadership in Incorporating Accessibility Standards into EIT Procurement Contracts

In March 1997, the Department of Education released its Requirements for Accessible Software Design. When the Department began including standard language in its contracts for software developed or acquired for the Department to be accessible and meet the criteria set by the Requirements, industry responded positively. Ultimately, the Department won the National Partnership for Reinventing Government Hammer Award for its efforts.
