User Acceptance Tests (UAT) as inroads for User Experience

Many applications are developed in my company, which is a large
financial corporation. During our software development process there is
no requirement for user experience or usability involvement. (There is
little chance right now of adding more requirements to the development
process, such as heuristic evaluations or usability testing; our
developers will accept no more requirements.
