Federal Web Managers Council

Who We Are

The Federal Web Managers Council is an interagency group of almost 30 senior web managers from the federal government. Our group includes representatives from every cabinet-level agency, several independent agencies, and representatives from the judicial and legislative branches. Originally called the Web Content Management Working Group, we were established by the Interagency Committee on Government Information (ICGI) in January 2004 to recommend policies and guidelines for all federal public websites, to comply with Sections 207(f)(1) and (2) of the E-Government Act of 2002 and with other requirements.

Our group issued its recommendations to the ICGI in June 2004. These recommendations and best practices became the foundation for this website.

Our Goals

Our strategic plan outlines three primary goals for our group:

1) Improve the content of government websites so that they are on par with the best websites in the world

2) Improve how government manages its use of the web

3) Create a dynamic community of government web managers across the country

How We’re Organized
