Hi, does anyone have any experience or info about applying ITIL to accessibility standards (Section 508, et al) and accessible delivery? I'd appreciate any help or direction. Thanks!

Are you talking about Disabled access to IT environment like the web etc

ITIL merely tries to come up with standard (best practice) for operating IT environments

Yes. I'm talking about applying ITIL best practices to accessibility program management and the delivery of accessible support. I've been asked to see if it applies but I'd rather not reinvent the wheel if others have already made this journey.

The only part of ITIL that might apply is in the Service Level Management process. This is where you develop agreements (both legally binding, and non-legally binding) between IT, the business, and vendors. In considering the agreements, special considerations such as access for the disabled could be large portion of the agreements.

Other than that, I can't think of any aspects of ITIL that would directly affect how IT delivers services to handicapped individuals.

If users with disabilities or special needs can't use a service then it is not available to them. Perhaps this would come under Availabilty Management?

Hi,

as stated above you can use the SLM process. In it there should be a process / method for determining the SLR's Service Level Requirements - which in this case can be the need to have the ability for disabled users to use services / systems etc. How you define the needs in more detail will be dependant of the template you use for SLR's.
