Accessibility Policy

The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) is committed to making every possible effort to ensure that all information is accessible to people with disabilities, including both employees and the constituents we serve. If you experience any difficulty accessing the information on our web site, please email us at We will try to assist you as best we can; this may include providing the information to you in an alternate format.

The Accessible Technology Program was established in June, 2000, to support individuals with disabilities by determining the most effective and commonly available assistive technologies and ergonomic solutions for equitable access to online media. These accommodations are a surprisingly affordable way to enable persons with disabilities to equal access to essential information.For additional information on Accessibility standards used within BOEM, visit the Accessibility Technology Center Website
