We are committed to making the Health and Human Services (HHS) Enterprise Portal accessible to all users. (Application Portals accessed from within the HHS Enterprise Portal may not meet accessibility requirements.) We have created our site and portlets using principles of accessibility and usability design and information on the HHS Enterprise Portal has been formatted to accommodate assistive technology wherever possible. Our standards are compliant with Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 Level AA, as noted in http://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG20/out going link. In addition, we carefully inspect our pages and test them with a variety of software tools.
We welcome comments on how to improve our pages for users with disabilities. If you use assistive technology and the format of any material on this website interferes with your ability to access the information, please use the following points of contact for assistance. To enable us to respond in a manner most helpful to you, please indicate the nature of your accessibility problem, the preferred format in which to receive the material, the web address of the requested material, and your contact information.

What Site Owners May Not Do in Linking to State Agency Websites
Site owners may not:
- Capture state agency pages within the site owner's frames.
- Present state agency website content as that of the site owner.
- Otherwise misrepresent the content of the state agency pages.
- Misinform users about the origin or ownership of the content of the state agency website.
- Any link to a state agency site should be a full forward link that passes the client browser to the state agency site unencumbered. The BACK button should return the visitor to the site owner's site if the visitor wishes to back out.
It is the responsibility of the user to maintain accurate information within this website. Employees must work with their supervisor to ensure the information is updated appropriately within the HR system of record.

Except for authorized law enforcement investigations, no other attempts are made to identify individual users or their usage habits. Raw data logs are used for no other purposes.
