Technology Purchase Considerations

Accessibility Technology Initiative (ATI) and Information and Communication Technology (ICT)

It is the policy of the California State University (CSU) to make information technology resources and services accessible to all CSU students, faculty, staff, and the general public regardless of disability status. CSU Executive Order 1111 and the CSU Accessible Technology Initiative (ATI) prescribe the framework and standards to be used by CSU campuses. Cal Poly ATI Standards affirm applicable Federal and State laws and standards pertaining to Information and Communication Technology (ICT) products and services. The ICT Review also includes an information security review for the data classification involved.

In accordance with Cal Poly's policy on Information and Communication Technology (ICT) decisions and related standards, all Cal Poly departments, auxiliaries, and employees are required to follow the ICT Review Process when deciding to acquire, develop or accept ICT products or services.

Prior to making an ICT decision, especially one involving a new product or service, it is important to consult with your unit management, unit IT support, and Information Technology Services (ITS) to assess the priority, resource implications, potential impact and alternatives, and available tools to meet the need.
