Section 508 Accessibility Statement

NSRP and SCRA are committed to providing access to our web pages for individuals with disabilities, both members of the public and Federal employees. To meet this commitment, we will comply with the requirements of Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act. Section 508 requires that individuals with disabilities, who are members of the public seeking information or services from us, have access to and use of information and data that is comparable to that provided to the public who are not individuals with disabilities, unless an undue burden would be imposed on us. Section 508 also requires us to ensure that Federal employees with disabilities have access to and use of information and data that is comparable to the access to and use of information and data by Federal employees who are not individuals with disabilities, unless an undue burden would be imposed on us. If you use assistive technology (such as a Braille reader, a screen reader, TTY, etc.) and the format of any material on our web sites interferes with your ability to access any information on this site, please contact for assistance in this matter. Please indicate the nature of your accessibility problem, the preferred format you would like to receive the material, the web address of the inaccessible material, and your contact information so that we may respond in a manner most helpful to you.

Accessibility in NSRP Programs

NSRP's programs provide accessible products, documentation, services, and websites recognizing that Section 508 of the U.S. Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, mandates that when the federal government purchases most electronic information and technology (EIT), including software applications, it must ensure that the EIT provides access to and use of, information or data to federal government employees with disabilities that is comparable to the access provided to federal government employees without disabilities. Moreover, under the act, the federal government is also obligated to provide access to information and data to members of the public with disabilities that is comparable to the access provided to the public without disabilities, but also provides ease-of-use for those that do not have disabilities. We understand the importance of Section 508 requirements to our customers. The regulations adopted by the federal government to implement Section 508 generally require U.S. government agencies to purchase software solutions that are most compliant with Section 508 requirements. In addition, other customers, including state governments and international bodies, increasingly require compliance with accessibility standards when making procurement decisions. Beyond the legislative compliance, we recognize that universal design and accessibility are good business strategies.

We are committed to providing accessible software products and documentation through the ongoing evolution of our business. Recognizing that accessible software also provides ease-of-use, we incorporate universal design into our planning process. As we develop our products, documentation, services, and web sites, we test them with assistive technologies and with operating system accessibility extensions to assess their compliance with applicable Section 508 accessibility criteria established by the federal government. The extent of compliance with the Section 508 accessibility criteria currently varies by product. Upon request of an eligible customer, we will provide information detailing the extent to which specific products, documentation, services, and web sites of interest to the customer in support of the applicable Section 508 accessibility criteria.

As accessibility requirements, standards and methodologies evolve, our customers can be assured that they will continue to have access to the most current product evolution made available in our efforts to meet current and future accessibility requirements for disabled users.
