Introduction to the ICT Accessibility and Security Review Process 

CSUSB believes that all students, faculty, and staff should have equal access to technology that is implemented on campus, and that the security of their information is of utmost importance. 

Accessible Technology Services (ATS) and the Compliance Initiatives Office conduct information and communication technology (ICT) product accessibility and security reviews for all state and auxiliary purchases. ICT includes information technology and other equipment, systems, technologies, or processes for which the principal function is the creation, manipulation, storage, display, receipt, or transmission of electronic data and information, as well as any associated content. If you are making an ICT purchase, regardless of the payment method, you must complete the ICT Accessibility & Security Online Review form (excluding those items that do not require ICT review).  See Pre-Approved Items for details.

CSU Executive Order 1111 mandates that Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is vetted for accessibility prior to purchase, as outlined in the CSU Accessible Procurement Framework. Each campus must also adhere to the CSU Information Security policy and standard, ICSUAM 8000.00, to ensure that security guidelines are followed for the protection of information assets.
