For more details, contact the MDHR.

IT Accessibility Standards
The goal of IT Accessibility Standards is to make sure people with disabilities can access web content. The Minnesota State Accessibility Standard applies whenever State agencies procure or develop information technology. It can be found at:

Vendors providing customized and off-the-shelf technology are often asked to provide VPATs (voluntary product assessment templates) that self-identify the product's level of accessibility. For guidance on the VPAT processes, please visit MNIT's Office of Accessibility page on IT procurement.
