CONTENT MANAGER PROGRAM


This resource center provides Content Managers of USCG public websites guidance regarding required training, obtaining site permissions, accessibility standards, technical program updates, as well as policies regarding the release of information to the public.


PROGRAM INFORMATION

Web Content Managers must be trained in order to become AFPIMS Users and must have Public Affairs training in order to have release authority for press releases within AFPIMS. 

If a unit has website updates that are less frequent than once every two months, they shall provide their content to a parent command with centralized administration. 

Should you need to update your site more frequently, you will need to identify one primary and one alternate. Both the primary and alternate need to accomplish all training and documentation requirements.

REQUESTING ADDITIONAL ACCESS

  • If you are a current content manager and are looking to request additional access or need your access transferred to a different site, you will need to accomplish a new request for audit purposes.
