New Editions supports the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Office of Accessible Systems & Technology’s (OAST) Trusted Tester Certification program. The program increases the capability and capacity of the DHS workforce and other federal agencies to support the Federal government’s mission to comply with Section 508. Under the contract, our Senior Section 508 Trusted Testers deliver rigorous, instructor-led courses on a formalized website and applications testing methodology, known as DHS Section 508 Compliance Test Process for Applications, to section 508 testers.

New Editions provides Section 508 support to the US Coast Guard web team (CG633) to assess sites for Section 508 compliance. Information Communication Technology (ICT) products are vital to Coast Guard operations’ and the Coast Guard is dependent on the Internet to communicate and distribute critical information. We assess the Coast Guard's public facing websites for accessibility and assist with remediation of sites that are not compliant. We also assess documents for accessibility and provide remediation assistance for non-accessible documents.

New Editions provides technical support to the OAST in addressing the accessibility of electronic and information technology (EIT) under Section 508, as well as its accommodation responsibilities under Sections 501/504.
