Prelaunch Assessments

Duke's Guidelines require new and substantially modified websites to be compliant before launch.  

To ensure the developers and content creators have ample time to fix any issues that may arise, we request advanced notice before launch.

Custom development & any external vendor website2 weeks or preferably during development
Sites @ Duke Pro Drupal website 1 week notice
Sites @ Duke Express WordPress website3-5 days notice

However; it is never too late to request a web accessibility assessment.

Ongoing monitoring

Tier 1 and Tier 2 websites are monitored on a regular basis.

Tier 1 & Tier 2Automated checks every night for major changes
Tier 1Manual testing monthly (at least)
Tier 2Manual testing twice yearly (at least)

Duke depends on all its site owners to monitor their own websites and by following Duke's Web Accessibility Guidelines to maintain conformance with WCAG 2.0 AA Guidelines.
