The 21st Century IDEA Act Sets New Standards for Federal Agencies

The 21st Century Integrated Digital Experience Act (IDEA) creates new guidelines for federal government agencies. Agencies are now required to have modern websites, including websites that are fully accessible to individuals with disabilities, mobile-friendly websites. All documents on the websites must also be fully functional for all, and electronic signature capabilities is one function now required for federal documents. Federal Agencies were required to comply with the IDEA Act within 180 days of its passing into law.
