Domain Waiver

OMB Policy Overview

The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) M-17-06, Policies for Federal Agency Public Websites and Digital Services, published November 8, 2016 requires agencies to use the .gov domain for all official government public websites unless the agency head explicitly determines a non-governmental domain is necessary for the proper performance of an agency function.

Official government public websites are information resources funded in whole or in part by the Federal government and operated by an agency, contractor, or other organization on behalf of the agency. They present government information or provide services to the public or a specific non-Federal user group and support the proper performance of an agency function.
