Custom-Built Applications

Agencies can develop custom applications internally or procure the services of a third-party application developer. OA-Information Technology also provides application development services for selected agencies.

Application Development Standards and Accessibility

All custom-built applications must follow the application development standards established for the commonwealth. These standards are detailed in the Enterprise IT Standards Quick Reference Guide. The guide includes standards for development languages, development methodologies, application testing tools and more.

Agencies are also required to ensure that Web sites are accessible for all users. Learn more about IT accessibility.
