Section 508 Technical Support for the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS)

New Editions provided training and technical assistance on Section 508 and the Secretary’s Section 508 Implementation Policy to designated individuals in the HHS agency and the Office of the Secretary. Section 508 requires procured, developed, maintained or used electronic and information technology (EIT) to be accessible to its employees and customers with disabilities. New Editions staff members worked directly with Section 508 Officials and Coordinators at each agency to ensure their understanding of the legal, technical and policy framework of Section 508 at HHS. We provided quality improvement analyses and reports to ensure that the HHS Chief Information Offices and the HHS' Office on Disability (OD) have comprehensive information on the impact of the Section 508 technical assistance and training programs.
