Key Public Entry Points (KPEPs)

June 12th, 2008 by Erick Beck

Most web maintainers across campus are familiar with the concept of the Key Public Entry Point as defined in state and university accessibility guidelines. In anticipation of a revised TAC 206 being pubilshed by the state, and a revisted Accessibility SAP being released by the university, the university web accessibility team has updated the KPEPs list and posted it online.

In general, the list is composed of college- and department-level home pages, as well as the hope page of other offices which act as an important conduit in traffing visitors into the main university web presence. The list explicitly excludes sites that are outside Texas A&M University proper, i.e., none of the systems sites are listed. This does not mean that these sites will not have to meet their own version of KPEP requirements, merely that they are outside the jurisdiction of the university itself and hence outside the scope of what the web access team undertook.

Please take a moment to review the list and see if any of the sites that you administer are on it. If so, there will be special accessibility requirements that the site will have to meet. These will be spelled out in the forthcoming SAP, but in the meantime you can look at the current accessibility policy to get an idea of what is required.
