Accessibility and Section 508 Compliance

Internet Accessibility Statement

FHFA-OIG is committed to providing access to our web pages for individuals with disabilities, both members of the public and federal employees.

To meet this commitment, we will comply as much as possible with the requirements of Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act Amendments of 1998 (29 U.S.C. § 794). Section 508 requires that individuals with disabilities have access to and use of information and data that is comparable to those who are not individuals with disabilities, unless an undue burden would be imposed on an agency. More information about Section 508 can be found at Section 508 Law and Related Laws and Policies. Further, FHFA-OIG applies the technical standards codified at 36 C.F.R. § 1194 to Information Communication Technology (ICT) such as webpages, posted official agency communications (documents), and video/multimedia. The majority of the content on pages on this website are accessible to individuals with disabilities in accordance with Section 508.

Reasonable Accommodation Procedures

An applicant for employment at FHFA-OIG may request a reasonable accommodation orally or in writing from any FHFA-OIG employee or representative of the Bureau of the Fiscal Service with whom the applicant has contact in connection with the application/selection process. An employee should request a reasonable accommodation from a supervisor or a manager within the employee’s immediate chain of command, the Office of Human Resources, or the FHFA-OIG Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) Program Manager. A family member, health professional, or other representative may request an accommodation on behalf of an employee or applicant as specified above.

Physical Accessibility Statement

FHFA-OIG is also committed to providing physical accessibility in its facilities for those with disabilities in accordance with the Architectural Barriers Act (ABA) of 1968 (42 U.S.C. §§ 4151-57), which requires that if a building or facility was built, designed, or altered using federal dollars or leased by federal agencies after August 12, 1968, it must be accessible to all individuals. The Access Board is an independent federal agency that promotes equality through accessibility efforts. Subject to certain limitations and exclusions, FHFA-OIG has adopted these same ABA accessibility standards by establishing appropriate physical accessibility standards in its facilities.

Telecommunications Relay Service

Telecommunications Relay Service (TRS) allows persons with hearing or speech disabilities to place and receive telephone calls. TRS is available in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. territories for local or long-distance calls. Callers can reach the FHFA-OIG hotline 24 hours a day, at 1-800-793-7724, VA Relay 711 (TRS).
