DOC Web pages are viewed by the public and employees as being the official position of the Department and have a high degree of visibility. It is imperative that Web content be overseen by management to ensure its quality, relevance to the agency’s mission, and that it is delivered in a usable and accessible form.

The head of each Department of Commerce organization is ultimately responsible for the content on Web sites of his or her organization and for its delivery. Therefore, managers should establish guidelines for the approval of Web content and its delivery.
