The General Services Administration's FirstGov team will launch a portal this week for federal webmasters.

The Web Content Managers On-line toolkit, at, will feature laws and regulations, best practices, online discussion areas, frequently asked questions, and a calendar of events and deadlines'all related to the building and maintenance of federal sites.

GSA administrator Stephen A. Perry said early this month at a luncheon marking the fourth anniversary of FirstGov's launch that he wants the FirstGov portal to reach 300 million visitors per year, up from 70 million now, and to increase page views from 200 million per year to 1 billion.
