Policies and Statements


The Iowa Department of Transportation's website is maintained for ease of use to the most people possible, including people with disabilities. In 2012 the State of Iowa implemented the Enterprise Operational Standard: Website Accessibility.

It is the website accessibility standard of Iowa that:

  1. Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 as amended will supersede and replace this standard in cases where agencies have in place funding agreements with the Federal Government requiring websites be Section 508 compliant.
  2. The State of Iowa will adopt all Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 levels A and AA as Iowa's standard for website accessibility. (See World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) website for definition of terms: http://www.w3.org).
  3. Contractors are required to comply with this standard when providing services to develop or maintain State of Iowa websites. State website RFPs for contractors shall include a reference to this standard. Awarded contracts shall include a written acknowledgement that their product will meet this standard. The department receiving the contracted website service is responsible for auditing the compliance for this standard.
