Usually the purchasing agency goes through the charter process and addressing the IITAA standards is part of that process. Also, CMS BOSSAP inserts the requirements into IFBs, RFPs, contract boilerplates, etc. This process covers the majority of purchases and development.
Send a formal letter to agency heads, State Purchasing Officers, Chief Information Officers including the State CIO, agency legal counsels, university presidents, constitutional offices, etc. We also will host an interest group/"kick off" meeting in February.
We can post a FAQ targeted to the public and consumers. We also will touch base with NFBI (National Federation of the Blind, Illinois) who introduced the bill to help them get the word out to their members and other interested parties.
