On July 13, 2000, Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act (29 U.S.C. 794D), as amended, was written into law. Section 508 applies to the Federal government when developing, procuring, maintaining, or using electronic information technology. Under Section 508, Federal departments and agencies shall ensure, unless an undue burden would be imposed on the department or agency, that the electronic and information technology allows access to information and data, regardless of the type of medium of technology, subject to the provisions as outlined in Section 508.

The Bureau of Naval Personnel is committed to and is making every possible effort to ensure that all electronic and information technology developed, procured, maintained, or used by the Bureau is accessible to people with disabilities, including both employees and the customers we serve. If you cannot fully access the information on a particular page, please utilize the contact information below. (This may include providing the information to you in an alternate format.)

To report a problem with accessibility on a Bureau of Naval Personnel web page, you may contact us at bupers_webmaster@navy.mil. In addition, you may submit a comment or suggestion regarding accessiblity through our Contact Us email link.

If an individual believes that a bureau or office has failed to procure electronic and information technology conforming to Section 508, that individual has the right to file a complaint under Section 508. The procedure for filing a complaint under Section 508 shall be the same as described in USC 43 CFR §17.570(c) for filing a complaint under Section 504 or resolving allegations of discrimination in a federally conducted program or activity, except that complaints under Section 508 must be filed with the Departmental Section 508 Coordinator, at the following address:
