Guidelines on the use of accessibility award criteria suitable for public procurement of ICT products and services in Europe
|Publication Date:||1 February 2014|
The present document gives guidance to procurement authorities intending to purchase ICT products and services on the use of award criteria relevant to each area of user needs in the public procurement of ICT products and services. It particularly deals with those aspects of any contract that are related to the functional accessibility requirements of ICT products and services that are dealt with in EN 301 549 [i.19].
The guidance provided in the present document is based on the assumption that the accessibility requirements of EN 301 549 [i.19] are applicable to a given procurement situation. Possible exceptions to the application of the EN to public procurement (e.g. national security, maintenance, repair, or occasional monitoring) are dealt with in TR 101 550 [i.20].
Aspects of award criteria that do not deal with accessibility in public ICT procurement in Europe are outside the scope of the present document.
