Webmasters

Procedures for establishing access for USAREUR webmasters and web authors


Public websites are used by U.S. Army organizations to communicate with the public at large. Content management of a public website is the responsibility of the organization's public affairs office, or appointed web content owner.

The Army web content owner ensures that information submitted for posting to an Army public website is current, timely, and cleared for applicable release by the public affairs officer or other designated official.

Websites will not contain information that is meant exclusively for organization employees and is of little or no use to the private sector, except in emergency or other exceptional situations. Information meant exclusively for organization employees should instead be housed on the organization's Intranet websites, or on approved private Internet systems.

U.S. Army Europe organizational websites must follow Army.mil template design, per direction of the Office of the Chief of Public Affairs. Army.mil templates and style guides can be downloaded at http://www.army.mil/create.

Contact the U.S. Army Europe webmaster at usarmy.europe.web@mail.mil or DSN 537-0012 for questions.
