Administrative Regulation


Ensurance of Accessible Technology


These Administrative guidelines must be followed to ensure that Section 508 standards are met in the procurement of information technology, services of products that are purchased, leased or developed with TTIP funds or other funds received by grant or contract.  To ensure that Section 508 requirements are satisfied, after Board Policy 3380 goes into effect on August 26, 2002, each contract with a vendor of hardware or software shall contain the provision set forth below or substantially similar language:


“Vendor hereby warrants that the products or services to be provided under this agreement comply with the accessibility requirements of Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended (29 U.S.C. 794d), and its implementing regulation set forth at Title 36, Code of Federal regulations, part 1194. Vendor agrees to promptly respond to and resolve any complaint regarding accessibility of its products or serviced which is brought to its attention.  Vendor further agrees to indemnify and hold harmless the Glendale Community College District, the Chancellor’s Office of the California Community Colleges, and any California community college using the vendor’s products or services from any claim arising out of its failure to comply with the aforesaid requirements.  Failure to comply with these requirements shall constitute a breach and be grounds for termination of this agreement.”
