The USDA TARGET Center provides AT Assessments to USDA employees with disabilities either in-person, over the phone, or through TARGET Web Connect. Employees or supervisors who feel there may be a need for assistive technology may contact the TARGET Center to schedule an assessment.
Typical AT Assessment
The typical USDA TARGET Center AT Assessment involves a phone or email conversation, a visit to the Center to work with technology, and occasionally an office visit. After an assessment, TARGET can assist a customer with requesting the recommended solutions through the USDA/CAP Partnership. In the event that the technology is not covered by the USDA/CAP Partnership, employees with disabilities can take the request to their DEPM and supervisor through the USDA Reasonable Accommodation Process. To request an AT assessment, please contact the TARGET Center.
