OMB looks at Web standards for all agencies

HERSHEY, Pa.'The Office of Management and Budget is drafting a recommendation that calls for federal Web sites to have a similar look.

OMB's Brooke Dickson, who is working on the guidance, said the administration has not decided the scope of the directive, but it will create a policy to address how agencies manage the lifecycle of Web content. Dickson, a policy analyst with OMB's Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, was a speaker at this month's Interagency Resources Management Conference.

Topics that could be included are ways to maintain data for the long term, developing and buying systems, ways information is disseminated and performance measures.
