Accessibility Community of Practice

About Our CoP

The IT Accessibility Community of Practice (508 CoP) consists of U.S. Government professionals who work to enhance access to federal information technology (IT). We identify and promote best practices for compliance with Section 508 law, and conformance to the Revised 508 Standards. We share successful practices and information, and engage advocacy groups, industry, and academia around innovative solutions for accessible technology.

This community is managed by GSA’s Government-wide IT Accessibility Team, which supports 508 Program Managers, content creators, web developers, procurement professionals, CIOs, and others working to buy and build accessible IT, through universal design, procurement best practices, accessible design and development, and compliance with Section 508.

Community Managers include Yvette Gibson, Avis Ryan, and John Sullivan
