Step 4 - Details

First, the Administrative Support Staff completes the purchase requisition. The Administrative Support Staff requests and receives all supporting documentation from the Purchase Requestor (e.g., IT purchase review approval documentation, price quote, accessibility documentation, vendor contractual documents, and any other documents) and uses the information to prepare the purchase requisition.

Next, the Administrative Support Staff obtains all necessary internal approvals before submitting the purchase requisition along with all supporting documentation for management and budgetary approvals and order processing.

Next, the Buyer works with the Vendor to ensure that all ATI Reviewer recommended accessibility terms and conditions are incorporated into the final Purchase Order (PO) or Contract. Accessibility requirements are typically incorporated via a rider to the PO or contract.

Accessibility requirements usually include:

  • CSU General Provisions for Information Technology Acquisitions - Clause 45
  • Vendor commitment to regularly update ACRs and other accessibility documentation (e.g., on an annual basis, or after major updates/new releases)
  • Vendor Accessibility Roadmap including a contractual commitment to meet defined milestones
  • Vendor demonstration to validate ACR conformance claims and accessibility roadmap progress
  • Vendor commitment to publish accessibility statements as recommended by the CSU

Once the the PO/contract have been finalized, and the order has been accepted by the Vendor, the Buyer ensures that all accessibility documentation is filed/imaged along with the PO/contract documents.
