Web Site Development and Maintenance
1 PURPOSE AND SCOPE
This regulation provides policies and guidelines for the design and publication of Department of Agriculture (USDA) organizational and personal Web pages. These Web pages, including Web-based application pages, are accessible by members of the public who have access to the Internet for telecommunications connectivity and use World Wide Web software browsers for search and retrieval services.
A Web site provides the public with an introduction to or “picture” of an organizational unit. The Web site may describe the unit’s mission and major programs; provide guidance on ways to access significant contacts or data and information; and offer hyperlinks to other organizational units, including subordinate units, and/or to organizations outside the unit.
