Bill Grubaugh, MS Human Factors/Ergonomics

The Disability Access Compliance Analyst (DACA) position was introduced to the San Francisco State University system in the spring of 2008. The DACA is responsible for providing the SF State campus with technical assistance in complying with federal and state disability-access laws, in addition to California State University (CSU) disability-access policies and guidelines. These laws, policies, and guidelines affect Electronic and Information Technology (E&IT), the physical environment, and all programmatic/policy activities.

As the DACA, I am charged with, but not limited to, the following primary responsibilities: consult and report to the SF State Section 508 and 504 Compliance Officer and the SFSU Accessible Technology Initiative (ATI) Executive Sponsor regarding procurement of E⁢ work with the ATI Procurement Work Group to shape local and global application of Section 508 procurement procedural policy and outreach; and serve as ADA 504, CA Title 24, and Americans With Disabilities Act Accessibility Guidelines liaison between the university‚Äôs Disability Programs & Resource Center, Capital Planning, and Facilities departments, in addition to independent ADA architectural consultants.  

I feel fortunate to work with the many committed individuals at SF State and throughout the CSU system to further this movement for social change.
