Support for the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) 508 Program Office

Through a subcontract with Vets, Inc., New Editions provides technical support to the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Section 508 Program Office. We test proposed electronic and information technology (EIT) products for Section 508 conformance within VA's Enterprise Architecture Framework. We also test IT Tracker products, OMB Exhibit 300's project/programs, E-Government (E-Gov) initiative programs, web-based and software applications, and learning management systems (LMS) courseware for Section 508 compliance. New Editions staff members conduct accessible EIT demonstrations for VA stakeholders (veterans and employees with disabilities), and Section 508 awareness training for VA employees. In collaboration with VA Section 508 staff, we also develop and conduct presentations at industry forums as well as state and local government meetings to raise awareness of accessibility issues and programs.
