In celebration of this year's National Disability Employment Awareness Month theme — Inclusion Drives Innovation — PEAT has launched Buy IT!, a free online resource to help employers and their purchasing teams build accessibility and usability into their information technology (IT) procurement processes.
Buy IT! offers step-by-step guidance on researching IT vendors, specifying accessibility requirements in your RFPs, and validating the accessibility of your product choices. As such, it addresses a crucial step in reducing the technology-related barriers facing many employees, job seekers, and customers with disabilities by helping businesses buy and implement technology that works for everyone.
