Procurement

All IT purchased, or otherwise acquired, by the University must be accessible.

Accessibility Reviews for Procurement

  • Purchases over $5,000
    Must be submitted through the IT Purchase Compliance process, which initiates accessibility and other necessary product reviews.
  • Purchases under $5,000 and free-to-use products
    Should consider accessibility in the selection process.

If you would like to consult with the IT Accessibility Coordinator during the selection process, email accessibility@ncsu.edu.

What You Can Do

Processing Time

  • An IT Purchase Compliance request submitted for review with accessibility information is usually processed within five to seven business days, unless vendors or IT Accessibility testing require additional time. 
  • An IT Purchase Compliance request submitted without accessibility information may be delayed, as additional information will be needed in order to perform the review. 
  • Standard hardware and software used by one or two people usually pass through the process quickly.
