Case Studies & Good Practices

It is useful to learn from those who have already experienced successes (and failures) in their endeavors to implement accessibility in Information and Communication Technology (ICT) public procurement programs.

In this Resource subsection, we first present examples of published good practices. This includes example toolkits and resources that are country-specific, beginning with the Irish Toolkit and the US Federal procurement ‘wizard’ tool. Next, we link to articles on one specific aspect of good practice, tying procurement language to published ICT accessibility testing methods.

In the future, this subsection will also include Case Studies. Case studies from past publications are currently being evaluated for inclusion. We welcome submissions of case studies, and/or we would like to hear from you if you would like to share your story so that we can add it here. (Use the Contact Us page to connect with us).
