Accessibility (508), Government Contracting, Government websites Accessibility, Section 508, wcag
Government websites serve an entirely different purpose than commercial, nonprofit, and member association websites. They also require a different approach and have different standards. Designing, developing, and maintaining government websites requires a unique set of skills, abilities, qualifications, and mindset.
Our government contracting team requires employees to pass background investigations, security clearances, employment eligibility verification, and recurring training and certification in information security and accessibility.
We comply with Section 508 for accessibility and the Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) that defines a comprehensive framework to protect government information, operations, and assets against natural and human threats.
We have served government agencies including NASA, White House, FCC, DoD, EPA, USDA, State Department, and the US Forest Service. We have contract vehicles including the GSA IT 70, 18F Agile BPA, and Smithsonian IDIQ.
