Voluntary Product Accessibility Template ®
Version 1.3
The purpose of the Voluntary Product Accessibility Template, or VPAT™, is to assist Federal contracting officials and
other buyers in making preliminary assessments regarding the availability of commercial "Electronic and Information
Technology" products and services with features that support accessibility. It is assumed and recommended that offers will
provide additional contact information to facilitate more detailed inquiries.
The first table of the Template provides a summary view of the Section 508 Standards. The subsequent tables provide
more detailed views of each subsection. There are three columns in each table. Column one of the Summary Table
describes the subsections of subparts B and C of the Standards. The second column describes the supporting features of
the product or refers you to the corresponding detailed table, e.g., "equivalent facilitation." The third column contains any
additional remarks and explanations regarding the product. In the subsequent tables, the first column contains the lettered
paragraphs of the subsections. The second column describes the supporting features of the product with regard to that
paragraph. The third column contains any additional remarks and explanations regarding the product.
