When new or additional content becomes available, the Department of the Interior (DOI) and its Bureaus and Offices will publish it on its Web sites in the order of the following publishing priorities recommended in the implementation guidance associated with Section 207(f):

  • Priority 1: required by law, regulation, Presidential directive, or other official directive or to ensure national security or public safety
  • Priority 2: mission-critical and essential for program operations, but not required by law, regulation, or Presidential directive (that is, information or services that are directly tied to an agency's mission and/or strategic plan)
  • Priority 3: frequently requested information or services that would improve business processes and/or customer service to the public (for example, most commonly used forms, documents, applications, transactions, etc.)
  • Priority 4: other information

If information fits in two or more priorities, it will assign it to the higher of the two.
