Voluntary Product Accessibility Template for IT Purchases

Software vendors are required to complete this Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT) when a new software solution is being purchased.  

When purchasing software with a value of less than $50,000, departments must obtain a completed VPAT from the software vendor. The completed VPAT, along with the completed Purchasing Software Solutions under $50,000 Questionnaire, must be forwarded to the Office of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion for review.  This process ensures compliance with the university's Web Accessibility Policy.

For additional information about the software purchase process, including instructions for purchases over $50,000, see the Purchasing Software page.
