Product Accessibility

The sole source

The sole source justification is often used as a loop hole to buy non compliant products in federal agencies.

There are some genuine sole source products which are crucial to the functioning of the agencyand are not compliant.

 

Even if they invoke the sole source justification agencies should work with the vendors and formulate a mitigation plan and a timeline to bring the product into compliance.

 

So even if the product is not compliant when brought into the agency, the agency should work with the vendor to make the product compliant and the the Section 508 language should be part of the contract.
