The Kansas Partnership for Accessible Technology (KPAT) aims to ensure that access to State of Kansas information and communications technologies and systems is equitable and inclusive for everyone, including people with disabilities.
The KPAT addresses web and information technology accessibility issues and provides related policy, standards, guidelines, and procedural recommendations.
The Partnership was established by Executive Order 08-12 in December 2008. It functions as a standing advisory committee to the Information Technology Executive Council (ITEC), and other committees, boards and commissions as appropriate. It meets quarterly and commissions ad hoc working groups to carry out individual initiatives. It produces an annual report to the ITEC, as well as to the Governor and Legislature. For administrative purposes, the Partnership is housed in the Office of Information Technology Services.
The Partnership works jointly with officials from other state agencies, organizations and county, municipal and tribal governments, as well as with businesses and organizations in the private sector whose products, services, or activities affect the accessibility of state services, programs, or systems.
