Homeland Security Web Content Inventory and Publication Schedule

Section 207(f)(2) of the E-Government Act of 2002 requires federal agencies to develop an inventory of information to be published on their Web sites, establish a schedule for publishing information, make those schedules available for public comment, and post the schedules and priorities on the Web site.

The Department of Homeland Security has undertaken a review of Web content and organization. This process includes gathering user (and potential user) feedback. The current inventory of information to be published is based on the current information and structure.
