The Section 508 Best Practices Webinar Series provides helpful information and best practices for federal agencies in meeting their obligations under Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act which ensures access to electronic and information technology in the federal sector. This webinar series is made available by the Accessibility Committee of the CIO Council in partnership with the U.S. Access Board and eFedLink.

This session will offer a case study of how one agency, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), incorporates accessibility into the process of engineering and deploying large systems. Mark D. Urban, HHS Program Team Co-Chair and CDC Section 508 Coordinator, will describe how HHS ensures accessibility from the first idea until the system is retired. He will discuss how to integrate Section 508 into the established process for development and will address challenges of the iterative development process and the tradeoffs with large customizable off-the-shelf software packages.
