How do different federal agencies conduct Section 508 testing? What are some of the issues faced by different agencies and how do they address them? How do agencies make the most of their existing resources to implement testing? What recommendations do these agencies have for other agencies?

This webinar will provide an overview of how four different agencies conduct Section 508 testing: Department of Education, Department of Transportation, Department of Health and Human Services and the Department of Labor. The panelists will discuss the resources available to their agency, how they conduct testing and what they have learned as a result of their experiences. Their experiences run the spectrum from developing programs with minimal resources and developing infrastructures to more mature programs with robust resources and institutionalized processes.

The recommended audience is Chief Information Officers, Chief Acquisition Officers, Agency Policy-Makers and 508 practitioners.
