Eliminate Duplicative and Outdated Websites -Within 30 days, GSA will make publicly available on Data.gov a list of all registered top-level .gov domain names. This list will be updated regularly. Within 60 days, GSA will provide agency-specific lists on MAX and the Federal CIO will issue instructions for how agencies should identify opportunities to improve content as well as eliminate duplicative and outdated websites. Within 120 days, each agency will use the agency-specific domain name list and related instructions to identify domain names that are no longer needed, websites that should be consolidated or eliminated, and website content that needs to be improved. Agencies will post on their Open Government page the actions they will take as a result of their review.
