Project Description

The website is currently undergoing a redesign which will make the site more user friendly and more accessible to all users. There are scores of PDF documents, mostly CEQ guidance, reports, and other publications, some of which date back to the 1980’s. Many of these PDF’s are scanned originals and are not compliant with section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended (29 U.S.C. § 794 (d)). The VSFS project will consist of remediating these documents to add meta-data, ensure content is machine readable, and other accessibility related functions.
