Addendum for Website ADA Compliance
Submitted By: Mike Biddle, Information Technology
Department: Information Technology  

Information
RECOMMENDATION
Approve execution of the Addendum with Vision Internet to include website modifications that will provide compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act.
BACKGROUND
An agreement was approved by the Commissioners Court on July 23, 2014 to redesign the website to include new features and capabilities. The agreement was awarded under the terms of the GSA schedule and provides for numerous enhancements to the web services offered by the county.

In August of 2014 the Department of Justice reviewed the county website and determined that the website was not in compliance with WCAG 2.0 Level A and Level B specifications. DOJ specified numerous requirements in order to provide the ADA capabilities, and ongoing evaluations to insure ADA improvements provide the best experience for the disabled and handicapped community.
DISCUSSION
The addendum to the website development is to provide compliance with the requirements of the American Disabilities Act and WCAG 2.0 Level A and Level as specified by the Department of Justice in the settlement agreement. This enables Vision Internet to implement the changes and web content management software that will provide the tools necessary to create, implement, and maintain web pages that comply with the ADA standards.
