Overview

ADA compliance is much more than widening doors and adding ramps to make a facility accessible. If you’re asking the question am I compliant with ADA requirements? The quick answer is probably ‘no’. If you’re asking the question, does ADA compliance apply to my procurement organization, the answer is a resounding ‘yes’. In most entities procurement posts and distributes more information on a regular basis to the public than any other department in the organization. That is why it is so important to understand what we need to do to provide potential suppliers accessible information and documents.
 
If ADA compliance is not clear or appears overwhelming to you, this presentation will take you through the WHY and the HOW of ADA compliance with some easy-to-follow steps to achieve accessibility in your procurement organization.
