This program supports the State of Minnesota's objective to improve accessibility and usability of documents, media and services by promoting and providing agencies and CPV members with cost effective captioning, remediation, and document/template creation and conversions services and compliance guidance. The Accessibility MN Master Contract Program supports the State of Minnesota's objective to maximize accessibility for all Minnesotans by providing end-users with cost effective captioning, remediation, and document/template creation and conversion services. This Program is available for use by State of Minnesota agencies and other government units eligible under the state's Cooperative Purchasing Venture (CPV's) established pursuant to Minnesota Statute § 16C.03, subdivision 10. Entities eligible to participate under the cooperative purchasing venture are described in Minnesota Statute § 16C.105.
While the primary objective of the Program is to provide a quick means of purchasing accessibility-improving services, the Program provides several additional benefits, including:
  • Administrative Efficiency (contracts are already in place);
  • Cost Avoidance (leveraging economies of scale);
  • Quality Assurance (pre-qualified contractors); and
  • Speed and Administrative Ease (a streamlined process).
  • Negotiated Maximum Rates in the Master Contract.
  • Direct Selection for engagements is allowed up to $15,000.
  • Vendor insurance maintained at the Master Contract level.
The following contractors have been awarded master contracts in the Captioning Services, Remediation and Document/Template Creation and Conversion Services categories. Click on the category to see eligible categories. Select contractor name to review contractor-specific information and cost data.

How do I utilize the program?

First, determine your eligibility to use the program. You must be a state agency or a member of the State's Cooperative Purchasing Venture (CPV) program. Second, determine the estimated total cost of the transaction. For transactions estimated to cost up to $15,000, including amendments, a user may select directly from the list of eligible master contract holders using the Engagement Request (ER) method. The ER method is a simple process allowed when a transaction will not exceed $15,000 in total cost. For transactions estimated to cost in excess of $15,000, including amendments, a user is required to competitively select a contractor using a Request For Offer (RFO). For best results and value, a user may also consider using the RFO to select a contractor regardless of estimated dollar value, including transactions estimated to cost $15,000 or less.
Transactions up to and including $15,000
The Engagement Request method allows direct selection of a master contract holder for transactions that will not exceed $15,000 in value, including amendments.
Transactions in excess of $15,000
Transactions, including amendments, estimated to cost in excess of $15,000 require a user to competitively solicit proposals from a minimum of three master contract holders using the Request for Offer (RFO) method.
Reporting (State Agencies Only)
Minnesota Statute § 16C.08, subdivision 4(c) requires state agencies, upon completion of a professional/technical services contract in excess of $25,000, to submit a one-page report summarizing the purpose of the contract, identifying the amount spent on the contract, and evaluating the work completed by the contractor. Reports can be completed online at The reporting requirement does not apply to users other than Minnesota state agencies.
Your agency's accessibility coordinator can be a good resource regarding vendors and other accessibility resources. For more information regarding accessibility, please visit the Office of Accessibility site.
