Evaluation and Purchasing

The MSU Electronic Information Technology (EIT) Purchasing Process helps MSU to build relationships with suppliers and publishers and to ensure the purchase and creation of more accessible products and services. MSU IT has partnered with MSU Purchasing to provide accessibility reviews as a part of the purchasing process.

MSU IT also provides review and consultation on the development of five-year accessibility plans, and annual self-reviews. For more information, contact your college/departmental web accessibility liaison, or contact the EIT Coordinator.
