The Statewide Accessibility Initiative (SAI) develops tools and information and compiles resources to assist Division of Capital Asset Management (DCAMM) staff, design teams, facility managers, and contractors in understanding common accessibility issues.
The following are some of the tools SAI has developed:

This form is a step-by-step electronic document for determining whether a repair or renovation triggers compliance with the MAAB (521CMR). It only addresses accessibility obligations under the Massachusetts Architectural Access Board (MAAB) Rules and Regulations and does not include scoping for ADA obligations. This form is available in alternate formats upon request.
