Technical information about this websites' accessibility
Proactis Tenders Ltd. is committed to making its website accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.
This website aims to be compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1.
Issues with technology
The text wont reflow in a single column when you zoom in to 400%.
Not all error messages are read out correctly in all browsers. For best experience we suggest using Google Chrome.
We have assessed the cost of fixing these issues and believe that doing so now would be a disproportionate burden within the meaning of the accessibility regulations. We will make another assessment when we next do a major redevelopment of the website.
Issues with Text
Some links do not show appropriate description when hovered over.
Some sections are not marked as lists (ex Buyer Name navigation).
There are some links that are not underlined.
Some form controls do not have labels and legend.
Not every page has got a headings and some tables do not have headers.
We plan to fix the existing links as soon as possible. When we publish new content we will make sure link text meets accessibility standards.
Issues with PDFs and other documents
Some PDF documents do not meet accessibility standards - for example, they may not contain mark-up and therefore may not be accessible to a screen reader.
The accessibility regulations do not require us to fix PDFs or other documents published before 23 September 2018 if they're not essential to providing our services.
Issues with images and video
Some of our videos do not have captions.
Issues with interactive elements and transactions
Some elements link to anchors that do not exit.
