Web Portal Governance Roles and Responsibilities
But first … Not set in stone. Will re-assess periodically to ensure meeting strategic goals of Portal Program, as it evolves. Need to make sure this will streamline processes, not get in the way... While providing for cooperation and input from across all agencies.
Definition Web governance is the structure of people, positions, authorities, roles, responsibilities, relationships, and rules involved in managing an agency's website(s). The governance structure defines who can make what decisions, who is accountable for which efforts, and how each of the players must work together to operate a website and web management process effectively. webcontent.gov
