The University of Maine System adopted on January 27, 2020 a “Information and Communications Technology Administrative Practice Letter” (APL). The APL defines terms, roles, responsibilities, and business procedures necessary to ensure realization of equality of opportunities afforded through Information and Communication Technologies as part of UMS programs, opportunities and activities.
For example, the APL lays out Information and Communications Technology accessibility-related responsibilities for web sites and other digital content, procurement of technology, related employee training, and responsibility for responding to ICT Accessibility incidents and complaints.
The Digital Technology Accessibility Committee is organizing the effort, across the system, to implement the new APL. Stay tuned for updates.
