Accessibility Statement

Section 504 and 508

Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) is committed to meeting or exceeding the accessibility requirements in accordance with Sections 504 and 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (29 U.S.C. § 794), as amended, in order to accommodate the widest audience, including individuals with disabilities,

Section 504 requires agencies to provide individuals with disabilities an equal opportunity to participate in their programs and benefit from their services, including the provision of information to employees and members of the public. Agencies must provide appropriate auxiliary aids where necessary to ensure an equal opportunity.

Section 508 requires Federal agencies to ensure that individual with disabilities (including employees and members of the public seeking information or services from an agency) have access to and use of Federal electronic and information technology (EIT) that is comparable to the access and use by persons who are not disabled. EIT includes computer hardware and software, websites, phone systems, and copiers.

Types of auxiliary aids may include braille or large print versions of materials, electronic diskettes, audiotapes, qualified interpreters or readers, telecommunications devices for deaf persons (TDDs), captioning of video, and other methods of making information available and accessible to persons with disabilities. In considering what type of auxiliary aid to provide, agencies must give primary consideration to the request of the individual with a disability and shall honor that request, unless it can demonstrate that another effective means of communication exists.

Under Section 508, all EIT developed, procured, maintained, or used by a Federal agency must be made readily accessible to and usable by individuals with disabilities, unless it would impose an undue burden on the agency. The U.S. Access Board, an independent Federal agency whose primary mission is to promote accessibility for individuals with disabilities, has developed technical requirements and criteria used to measure conformance with Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act (commonly known as the “Section 508 Standards”). For more information, check out the Section 508 and the Section 508 Standards websites https://www.section508.gov/and the DoD Section 508 websitehttps://dodcio.defense.gov/DoDSection508.aspx/
