The Right Tools for the Right Talent: The Computer/Electronic Accommodations Program (CAP) Process
Abstract: CAP is a Department of Defense centrally funded computer assistive technology (AT) and reasonable accommodations program.
Summary: The Computer/Electronic Accommodations Program (CAP) is a Department of Defense (DoD) centrally funded computer assistive technology (AT) and reasonable accommodations program. This session will contain a CAP overview and highlight how CAP supports DoD agencies and employees for the procurement of assistive technology (AT) at no cost to the agency. The brief will also highlight CAP’s needs assessment process, which is used to determine the most reasonable and appropriate AT to accommodate employees and active duty Service members. The discussion will focus on the needs assessment process for eligible customers, how to request an assessment and how it adds value to DoD agencies by identifying correct employee accommodation solutions in the shortest amount of time.
