Accessibility Information Notice


The Security Office at National Processing Center is committed to making its website accessible to all our customers. Our website is undergoing redesign to ensure that it meets or exceeds the requirements of Section 508 of the Workforce Investment Act of 1998. Many of our pages now meet the standard but we are continually working to make all pages accessible.

Please note that "external links" are not supported by this organization and no control exists over the external site's Section 508 compliancy. If you encounter problems in accessing our web application, please e-mail to the Webmaster the URL (the web site address) describing what problems you encountered. This will help us to serve you better and contribute to our prioritization of the workload in achieving Section 508 compliance. Thank you for your assistance in this matter. Please select this link: Contact: NPCIntranet@census.gov to e-mail the NPC Web Administrator.
Synopsis of Section 508 Accessibility Requirements:
Section 508 requires that when Federal agencies develop, procure, maintain, or use electronic and information technology (EIT), Federal employees with disabilities have comparable access to and use of information and data as Federal employees who have no disabilities, unless an undue burden would be imposed on the agency. Section 508 also requires that individuals with disabilities, who are members of the public seeking information or services from a Federal agency, have comparable access to and use of information and data as the public without disabilities, unless an undue burden would be imposed on the agency.
Although Federal agencies have an explicit statutory obligation to make all EIT that they develop, maintain or use compliant with Section 508, the current emphasis is on newly procured EIT because it is the category that is explicitly enforceable by legal action. Procurement awards made on or after June 25, 2001, are subject to Section 508 (see FAR Final Rule).

According to the Access Board, the Section 508 requirements do not apply retroactively to pre-existing EIT. Specifically, the " Electronic and Information Technology Accessibility Standards: Economic Assessment," states that
"The standards are to be applied prospectively and do not require Federal agencies to retrofit existing electronic and information technology. As agencies upgrade and change their electronic and information technology, they must comply with the standards."
(See Chapter 2.1 Final Standards)
It should be noted, however, that other Federal regulations and guidelines (e.g., Section 501 and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act) require equal access for individuals with disabilities. Therefore, Federal agencies are required, upon request, to provide information and data to individuals with disabilities through an alternative means of access that can be used by the individuals.
