Hi, Thomas. I am requesting records related to the Office of Water's protocols for webpage and database maintenance and updating/changing - the records containing the policies and procedures for all of the Office's webpages and databases, generally. I assume that each particular webpage and website does not have its own procedural requirements, and that there are some overarching policies, rules, and processes for updating, changing, and removing content from Office of Water webpages. If this is not the case, and each particular webpage has its own policies and requirements, let me know, and I'll send a list of particular webpages. Otherwise, I request the records including manuals, guides, and all other communications describing those general procedures and process for updating, changing, and maintaining the content of public-facing agency websites. Thanks, and let me know if you have any other follow-up questions/specifications, etc.

Sincerely,

Sarah
