Hi all,

I have never seen a job posting for a procurement position in higher education that specifically and intentionally centers accessibility compliance, have you? Interesting idea, read the announcement below for more information.

Upon reading the description myself, I notice a few things. Tom me, the job responsibilities seem to creep beyond the procurement process and feel a lot like the responsibility of an Accessible IT Coordinator required by our own state's policy 188. Also, the salary is not listed which is a pet peeve of mine.

What do y'all think?
