IT Accessibility Policy and Digital Product Review

The UC IT Accessibility Policy requires that digital products, purchased from a 3rd-party or developed at UC Berkeley, another UC campus or by UC Office of the President, must meet WCAG 2.0 AA standards for accessibility.

All information technology vendors doing business with UC Berkeley should have an Accessibility Conformance Report (ACR) for their digital products.  An ACR is created when a supplier/vendor's experienced digital accessibility evaluator fills out the Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT). Please note that the VPAT much be completed following all of the instructions listed on the template.

If you need to purchase a new IT product, develop a new or existing product, or ensure previously purchased products meet the IT Accessibility Policy at the University of California, please fill out our intake form then email us at, so we can begin the process in supporting you.
