AIR FORCE - AFI 33-393
ELECTRONIC AND INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY ACCESSIBLE TO INDIVIDUALS WITH DISABILITIES, SECTION 508
|Publication Date:||3 July 2019|
The Air Force corporate approach to Section 508 implementation follows the guidelines established by the Office of the Secretary of Defense of "centralized management with decentralized execution." This approach provides a corporate strategy that will lead the Air Force to its goal: "To provide an Air Force-wide coordinated Section 508 effort that addresses all legal requirements and provides maximum access to electronic and information technology while maintaining full mission focus and capabilities." The Office of the Secretary, Deputy Chief Information Officer, has overall responsibility for addressing Section 508 challenges and to ensure the Air Force Section 508 project addresses electronic and information technology accessibility issues before they adversely affect the mission and mission support functions. Conquering Section 508 challenges will require the cooperative efforts of content managers, developers, contracting officers, program managers, portfolio managers and requiring officials at every Air Force level. People with disabilities must be given the opportunity to maximize their contribution to the success of the Air Force mission by maximizing the accessibility features of electronic and information technology equipment.
